Mango: Main Image

Best to Buy

Choose semisoft fruit with uniformly smooth skin. A couple black spots are acceptable as these indicate a very ripe mango—and the riper, the sweeter.

Prep & Store

Mangos are delicious raw but should be peeled as the skin is very acidic. After peeling, use a sharp knife to cut the flesh away from the large, flat, oval stone in the center. Or cut away from stone first, score the fruit attached to the peel crossways, and then cut fruit away from the peel to make mango cubes.

Tasty Tip

Enjoy mangos topped with yogurt or mixed into breakfast cereal. You can also freeze pieces to puree for juice, marmalade, compote, or sauces.

Nutrition Notes

Mangos are an excellent source of vitamins A and C.
