Mango: Main Image

Buying Tips

Choose semisoft fruit with uniformly smooth skin. A couple of black spots are acceptable as these indicate a very ripe mango (the riper ones are sweeter). Mangos with green areas will ripen at room temperature, although completely green fruit may not. Look for fruit grown in the United States, as imported mangos are often irradiated or sprayed with chemicals banned in the United States.


There are over a thousand varieties of mangos that vary in shape from round to pear-shaped to narrow and oval, and that can weigh up to 4 pounds (1,814g). Mangos sold in markets are usually not differentiated by variety, but are generally 4 to 5 inches (10 to 12.5cm) in length and weigh about 8 ounces (227g). One exception is the Manila mango; these are a smaller, golden-yellow variety that are now appearing in markets.
