From USDA Handbook No. 669, load compatibility Group 2. Mangos are com- patible with avocados, bananas, eggplants, grapefruit, guava, limes, muskmelons (other than cantaloupes), olives, papayas, pineapples, tomatoes, and watermelons.
USDA recommended storage 55° F (12.8° C).
Approximate freezing point 30.3° F (-0.9° C).
At the above temperatures, mangos should keep for two to three weeks. Some varieties may be successfully stored at 50° F (10.0° C); however, shippers’ instruc- tions should be followed, as most varieties are susceptible to chilling injury at temperatures below 55° F (12.8° C).
Fully ripe mangos may be successfully stored at temperatures near 40° F (4.4° C). To ripen mangos, temperatures of 70°-75° F (21°-24° C) are best. Higher temperatures may affect flavor, while lower temper- atures may result in a tart, sour flavor.
