Abstract

The Australian National Mango Breeding Program has been breeding mangoes since 1994. In recent years, evaluation of the elite selection have identified three high performing hybrids, NMBP1243, NMBP1201 and NMBP4069, which are in the process of commercial release. These hybrids all have 'Kensington Pride' as their paternal parent and are characterised by improved fruit colour and tree productivity over 'Kensington Pride'. NMBP1243 is noted for its early season production, and NMBP1201 and NMBP4046 for their firm fruit. The hybrids were produced using hand pollination breeding and selection techniques. The breeding program is ongoing with the current hybridisation program being supported by a multidiscipline approach, that includes marker assisted screening, disease screening, postharvest evaluation and a genomics gene discovery program.
