The King of Fruits!

Here’s how to choose a perfect mango:

  • Ripe mangos will sometimes have a fruity aroma at their stem ends.
  • The red color that appears on some varieties is not an indicator of ripeness.
  • Don’t focus on color – it’s not the best indicator of ripeness.
  • Squeeze the mango gently – a ripe mango will give slightly.
  • Always judge by feel.
