Mango Buyer's Guide

How to pick a perfect mango.

The ripest mangoes have a sweet fruity aroma at stem ends and flesh that gives slightly when gently squeezed. (Don’t judge by color; redness doesn’t always equal ripeness.) Refrigerate ripe mangoes for up to five days. Firm mangoes ripen at room temperature; speed the process by placing in a paper bag.
