How to Choose Fresh Mango at the Market




When shopping for mangos, look for firm, well shaped fruit with shiny, taut skin that is free of cuts and blemishes.


Color isn’t always the best indicator of ripeness, since skin color differs from variety to variety.


Green mangos are mangos that are picked before they are ripe.



They’re firm and tart, tasting a little like sour apple and they’re very popular in Asian cooking.

Mangos continue to ripen even after picking.


To ripen a mango, store it at room temperature away from direct sunlight, or place in a paper bag checking it daily to prevent over-ripening.


It’s also a good idea to turn the fruit occasionally.
