Mango tissue affected by the physiological ripening disorder known as soft centre or spongy tissue is visible only when the ripe fruit is cut in 2 halves, when it can be differentiated from healthy tissue by its pale yellow colour, and soft or spongy nature with or without air-pockets, accompanied by off-flavour. The extent of damage due to this internal breakdown and its variation with weight of fruit, time of picking, place of harvest and orchard conditions, and the chemical composition of the fruits were studied. Average loss due to this disorder was 30%. Fruits greater than 300 g showed the maximum loss; fruits from coastal regions recorded a higher incidence of the disorder and fruit harvested in the middle of the season suffered a greater percentage breakdown. Breakdown tissue showed significant difference in carotenoids, sucrose and mineral content. Ca was low and P was high in diseased tissue compared to healthy tissue.
