How to Identify Fresh, Ripe Mango

For best results, we suggest using sweet fresh mango, however, how can you tell if a mango is ripe to eat or not? While the color of a mango might not be the best way of telling its ripeness, it often emits a slightly sweet and fragrant aroma when ready. Also, if you gently apply pressure and if it is firm, it might need a little longer, but if it is subtly soft, it is ready. If it is too squishy it might be overripe.
