Great out of hand or over the sink, as sometime a real ripe mango can be a bit of a mess.
Choose large 10-12 count mangoes (it is the amount that fits in a case), with lots of color that yield to gentle pressure.
If not fully ripe, allow mangoes to ripen at room temperature in a paper bag. Once ripe, mangoes can be stored in your refrigerator for up to two weeks.
Avoid small mangoes as they are invariably all seed.
