Cutting mango is really simple, once you have discover how to do it!

  1. Standing the the mango with its stem up cut down the two sides that are long.
  2. cut the opposites off.

HOW DO YOU KNOW WHEN A MANGO IS RIPE?

A mango is best when it is soft! ALMOST to a mushy soft, but not quite. The colors will deepen and you may even see some spots.
