Choosing Your Mango

If you’re not sure how to pick the right mango, we’re here to help. Use these tips to help you pick a ripe mango, every time.

The first step is to feel the mango. Make sure you select a mango that’s slightly soft when squeezed. Much like choosing an avocado, it should be firm but feel slightly soft under the skin when pressed. Secondly, don’t be afraid to give your mango a whiff. Ripe mangos will have a fruity aroma.

Once you’ve found a few good mangos, don’t let them go to waste! Save a few slices to top this Easy Rice Pudding or to balance out the savory flavor of our 15 Minute Chicken and Rice Dinner or this Red Beans and Rice recipe. You can also try it with our easy Microwave Egg Fried Rice.
