Abstract: Mango (Mangifera indica L) fruits are widely grown in Sudan for local and export utilization. Selected physical and chemical quality attributes of three mango cultivars Kitchener, Abusamaka and Tommy Atkins were evaluated at ripening stage during two seasons (2013-2014). The experiments were arranged in Complete Randomize Design (CRD) with three replications. Results showed that cultivars had significant differences in fruit weight, fruit length, fruit width, pulp weight, pulp thickness, seed weight, seed length, seed width, peel weight in the two seasons. Tommy Atkins obtained the maximum fruit weight, fruit width, pulp weight, pulp thickness, seed weight and seed width values in the two successive seasons and peel weight in the second season. Furthermore, Abusamaka recorded the highest values in fruit and seed length in 2013 and 2014 seasons and peel weight in first season. In the case of chemical characteristics, Tommy Atkins showed the highest Ascorbic Acid and moisture content in the two successive seasons while, Kitchener had the maximum total acidity, TSS, Ash and total sugar content.
