The Keitt Mango (when you can find it) can be one of the most impressive mango varieties you'll ever see or taste.

Scientific Binomial Name: Mangifera indica

SELECTION INFORMATION
Usage

Eat out of hand, in salads, as a chutney, juiced or blended - the uses go on and on. Although generally smaller than other mango varieties, the meat portion is quite large for its size, and the string-less interior melts in your mouth.

Selection

Generally dead green on the outside, Keitt mangoes are easily one of the most fiber-less, juicy, thin-seeded, and largest mangoes available.

Close your eyes and choose Mangoes by their give to gentle pressure not their color.

Avoid

Avoid Keitt Mangoes that overly soft or have bruising.

Storage

A firm mango can be stored in your refrigerator for nearly two weeks and still ripen properly.

Ripening

If not fully ripe, allow mangoes to ripen at room temperature in a paper bag (or sealed plastic bag with a ripe banana).

  • Tips & Trivia
  • Here's an easy way to cut up a mango. Cut the majority of the meat away from the pit in two pieces by cutting along the flat side of the seed. Then score the cut side of the fruit with a knife in a criss-cross pattern, being careful not to cut all the way

    Buy mangoes at low costs by the case and freeze what you don't eat because these are perfect for the blender or juicer at a later date.

    Great as a center piece when the halves are cut in a criss-cross pattern and inverted.

    World-wide, the mangos is the most universally popular of all fruits. However, they probably are the most underrated of all fresh fruits used in the United States where bananas are by far the most popular fruit.

    Keitt Mangoes (along with the Kents) are one of the best varieties available in the States. Unfortunately it's also one of the least known. This mango can grow to a stunning size close to that of a football!
