Abstract: The nutritional and therapeutic value of mango justifies as “King of Fruits” and processing of mango fruits into value added products would be boon to the processor as well as grower. RTS- beverages preparation require low cost and low energy processing technology, simple and adaptable in rural countryside with limited skill and resources. As the raw produce goes for processing, screening of eight important cultivars (viz Mithua, Bombay-green, Gulabkhas, Zardalu, Langra, Dashehari, Alphonso and Himsagar) of mango grown under Chhotanagpur plateau region of Jharkhand were undertaken. Simultaneously, encourage commercial cultivation of mango varieties suitable to grow. The screening result of cultivars show maximum average fruit weight was recorded in Himsagar (220.0 g) and Dashehari had smallest fruit weight (104 g), which is too small size but still liked by people. Pulp percentage more than 70 percent found in cv. Gulabkhas, Langra, Alphonso, Himsagar, Bombay-green and Dashehari. Maximum TSS of juice was in Langra (19.50 B). On overall screening of physico- chemical analysis of fruits and prepared RTS beverages at 150 B showed Alphonso, Himsagar and Langra are mostly accepted and Mithua and Zardalu are least accepted on 9 point Hedonic scale.
