A mango has one long, flat seed in the center of the fruit. Once you learn how to work around the seed, the rest is easy.

Always use a clean knife and cutting board to cut a mango. Sanitize your hands, work area, utensils and cutting board before handling or cutting any fruits or vegetables, especially if you’ve handled any type of meat or seafood.

Always wash the mango before cutting.



Slice each side just past the seed.

Slice flesh without breaking the skin.

Scoop out slices and enjoy!


Stand the mango on your cutting board stem end down and hold. Center the Mango Splitter above the mango, with the opening in the splitter aligned with the widest part of the mango.

Firmly push down to separate the mango flesh from the seed.

Use the “Slice and Scoop” or the “Inside Out” methods shown above to separate the mango flesh from the skin in cubes, dices or slices.

The mango splitter can be purchased at stores that sell kitchen accessories or online at Amazon or Chef’s Resource.
