Mango Ripening & Storing

HOW TO CUT MANGO

Cutting into slices
1. Use a knife and a cutting board to cut a mango.
2. Keep the mango upright, so that the stem of the fruit is on the top. The flat pit or seed of the fruit runs from the stem to the base. One cuts around this pit or the seed of mango.

3. Make two verticals cuts on the opposite sides a quarter inch away from the steam. Cut away the two slices and then you can cut them further in two halves or detach the flesh using a spoon.

4. Another way of enjoying a mango is to make a grid pattern in the flesh without cutting the skin and scooping out individual mango cubes.

HOW TO CHOOSE A MANGO

1. The colour of the fruit is not the best indicator of its ripeness.

3. Some varieties develop a fruity aroma around the stem once they are ripe.
