Honestly, the most difficult part will be cutting the mango. They can be a little tricky if you've never tried before.

How to Cut a Mango

Mango pits are in the center of the mango, oddly shaped, and they run most of the length of the fruit.

  • Stand mango on stem.
  • Slice down the length of the mango, off the center (about 1/2 inch)
  • Then, repeat on the other side of the pit. You're basically cutting a mango plank in the center and two side pieces. The side pieces contain the edible fruit. Throw the center piece away.
  • Cutting the side pieces: with the cut-side up, carefully slice vertical cuts into the flesh of the mango, but not going through the skin.
  • Then, slice crosswise to create a grid pattern, being careful not to cut through the skin.
  • Press the mango skin from the back to "pop out" the fruit pieces.
  • Next, use a spoon, knife, or peel off diced pieces with fingers.

How to Tell When a Mango is Ripe

Squeeze the mango gently. If it gives a little bit, then it is ripe. If the mango is very firm, wait a few more days. For faster ripening- place mangoes in a brown paper bag with a banana or apple. Also, unripe mangoes should be kept at room temperature, not in the refrigerator. Once ripe, mangoes can be stored in the refrigerator to slow down further ripening.
