A research experiment was conducted at the Fruit Research Station, Sakkarbag Farm, Junagadh Agricultural University, and Junagadh during the year 2013-2015 to study the evaluation of small to medium sized mango varieties under Saurashtra Agro Climatic Conditions. The experiment was laid out in 12 year mango trees with Randomized Block Design and three replications. Total eight varieties were under taken for the evaluation which falls under small to medium sized fruits viz., Kesar, Nilphanso, Alphonso, Amrapali, Dashehari, Sindhu, Khodi and Dudhpendo. The maximum plant height in Alphonso and plant spread (E-W and N-S) in Kesar was recorded. The maximum fruit length, fruit width, average fruit weight and pulp weight were found in Kesar. Sindhu recorded minimum stone weight and peel weight. The maximum number of fruits per plant was registered in Khodi. The highest fruit yield per plant and hectare were recorded in Kesar variety. Quality parameters viz., total soluble solid in Kesar, minimum acidity, reducing sugar and non-reducing sugar were reported in Dudhpendo. From different varietal evaluation of small to medium sized mango varieties, it concluded that the mango variety Kesar was found the best for commercial growing in South Saurashtra Agro Climatic Conditions for yield and quality.
