The objective of this study was to investigate the effect of chitosan coating on the quality of 'Sensation', 'Irwin' and 'Chinn Hwang' mangoes. Results indicated that the chitosan treated mango fruits tended to have a lower weight loss than the control fruits, while 2 and 3% chitosan coating had remarkable effect in reducing weight loss. Chitosan coating also modified fruits'internal atmosphere, especially 1, 2, and 3% chitosan coating can cause fruits internal accumulated considerable quantities odf carbon dioxide and lower level of oxygen concentration. Chitosan coating delayed the ripening of 'Chinn Hwang' mangoes, of which 2 and 3% chitosan coating tended to delay the changes of peel and flesh color, fruits softness and changes of starch to sugar of 'Chinn Hwang' mangoes. However, 1,2, and 3% chitosan coating caused substantial accumulation of ethanol and acetaldehyde in 'Sensation' mango and induced off-flavor.
