Mango Magic: Your Guide to Summer’s Juiciest Fruit

Transport your taste buds to the tropics with sweet, juicy mangoes! Packed with over 20 essential vitamins and minerals, mangoes are the perfect summer treat.

If you’ve never enjoyed fresh mango at home, you’re missing out! There’s no need to be intimidated by its unique shape – we’ll guide you through choosing, storing, cutting and savoring mango like a pro.

Choosing the Perfect Mango: Color isn’t the best indicator of ripeness for mangoes. Instead, give it a gentle squeeze – a ripe mango will be slightly soft, while unripe ones will feel firm.

Storage Secrets: If your mango needs a few days to ripen, store it at room temperature and check daily. Once ripe, refrigerate for up to five days to extend its shelf life.

Cutting with Confidence: A mango has one long, flat seed in the center. To slice around it, rest the mango stem-side down and slice off the “cheeks”—the two fleshy sides—avoiding the seed. Score the flesh into cubes while still in the peel, then scoop out with a spoon. Slice off any remaining flesh from the seed area.
