Abstract: The colour, flavour, and taste of fruit products are factors critical to consumer acceptance and the success of these products. The aim of this study was to evaluate the sensory characteristics of five mangoes grown in Aceh Tamiang region. The sensorial evaluation of mangoes was conducted by using a 9 points hedonic scale. One hundred panelists were selected on the basis of their ability to discriminate and scale a broad range of different attributes. Flavour characteristics of Mangifera odorata collected from all region were found to be superior among colour and taste. However, this species was rated inferior for other sensory attributes (colour, taste, and overall acceptability). Mangifera indica was recorded for maximum taste, flavour and overall acceptance score.
Keywords: Sensory characters, Mangifera, Aceh Tamiang, Aceh.
