Abstract : Intensive cultivation of mangoes is a recent occurrence in New Caledonia. In addition to satisfying domestic fruit consumption demands, the main objectives involved are exporting and processing. Due to the existence of various leaf and fruit diseases, the island's phytosanitary conditions require the useof adapted tolerant varieties and so variety trials have been carried out in this area since 1990. The results obtained have led to guidelines on planting densities adapted to climatic conditions and selecting varieties in order to lengthen the growing season. By spreading out varieties from the warmest areas (early varieties) to the coolest ones (late varieties), it has become possible to produce mangoes for a period of six months (November to April). Post-harvest treatments and low-temperature storage have also increased the sales period. (Résumé d'auteur)
