Ethiopia has highly –diversified agro ecological conditions which are suitable for the production of various types of fruit and vegetables. The southern region has 110,931 square km accounting about 10% of the country. With regard to the land use, out of the total area about 25% is cultivated, 22 % potentially cultivable, 12% is grazing and 19% is covered with forests and bushes. The objectives of this survey are to analyze existing potential of mango production and the livelihoods of the mango producers. The national average production is 10 tones. However; it is well known that yields of 25 tones. ha and more for Kent, Tommy Atkins and Keitt are common with regard to maturity, depending on cultivars and environmental conditions it takes 90 to 160 day after flowering. Not all fruits on one tree will ripen at the same time. A opportunities have high demand, favorable agro climate for mango production and great problem is to determine precisely the stage at which the fruits picking, and disease
