Factors of the relation plant/environment which predispose mangoe fruits, var. Tommy Atkins, to physiological disorders were determined. Therefore, fruit location in the plant, the degree of ripeness and the relation of vigor between branch/fruit were analysed. The results allowed the following conclusions: a) the fruit positioning in the plant has no influence on the occurence of physiological disorders; b) there is a certain relation between vigor of the branch and the presence of disorders in the fruit; c) the percentage of occurrence of physiological disorders is a function of the fruit ripeness degree at harvest time, being very small when the fruit is harvested early.
