Study of Floral Morphology of Mango (Mangifera indica)
Yang, S. R., K. C. Lee and W. N. Chang
The order of differentiation and development of flower bud of mango were functional stamens, followed by staminodes and the carpel was the last development organ. The differentiation of florets will be lasted after the panicle emerged. The one of functional stamen were observed in both of cultivars of Irwin, Haden, Keitt, White and native mango, but sometimes 2 or 3 of functional stamens were produced in cvs of Keitt and White mango. The staminodes were average 4.5 for cvs Irwin and Haden and 2.8 for Keitt mango, but there are scarcely noticeable staminodes found in native mango. Multiple carpel (2-4) also was observed in a flower, especially in cv. Irwin. The mango panicle consists of male, hermaphrodite and imperfect flowers. The imperfect flowers are the least abundant (less than 1%) among the three categories of flowers.
