Mangoes of the Irwin, Edward, Palmer, and Keitt varieties were evaluated as to their quality for nectar. The pulp yields were 75.07, 76.85, 73.23, and 78.95%; and the soluble solids were 16.0, 21.2, 20.5 and 21.5° Brix, respectively. The quality of the canned nectars stored for as long as 12 months under ambient conditions was acceptable. Compared to the nectars of the other three varieties the variety of Keitt nectar was inferior in quality during the first three months and at the end of the study. During intermediate periods nectars from the Palmer and the Edward cultivars were superior.
