Habitat and Ecology [top]

Habitat and Ecology:It is only known from cultivation but occurred in tropical forest habitats that are thought to have been converted into agricultural lands (Bompard 1988, WCMC 1998).

Use and Trade [top]

Use and Trade: This species is cultivated in Kalimantan (Indonesia) for its edible fruits (USDA, ARS, National Genetic Resources Program 2014). It also belongs to Taxon Group two of Mango Mangifera indica (Kostermans and Bombard 1993) and so it has potential for use as a gene donor for crop improvement, particularly for traits that confer disease resistance (USDA, ARS, National Genetic Resources Program 2014).
