Vietnamese Mangoes are one of the primary tropical fruits cultivated in Vietnam, second only to bananas. Vietnam ranks 13th in the world for mango production, with a total cultivation area of over 87,000 hectares nationwide. Annually, mango exports to various countries around the world contribute significantly to the nation's economy, providing stable income for farmers, particularly in the Mekong Delta region.
Hence, there is a need to focus on understanding the growth conditions of mango trees to implement effective cultivation practices that yield high productivity. Mangoes thrive in diverse ecological regions, making them suitable for cultivation in almost all provinces from the northern to the southern parts of the country. In the northern region, mango cultivation has a long history but has been relatively scattered and of lower quality.
Mangoes are favored by both horticulturists and consumers for their irresistibly sweet taste and high nutritional value. They are rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that contribute to human health. Additionally, mangoes hold significant economic value, providing stable income and profits for growers.
