    How to Choose a Mango

    Learn how to judge ripeness so you can always use the perfect mango in your dish

    • Don't focus on color. It is not the best indicator of ripeness.

    • Squeeze the mango gently. A ripe mango will give slightly.

    • Use your experience with produce such as peaches or avocados, which also become softer as they ripen.

    • 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. Always judge by feel.
