The Underrated Mango
Mangoes are the most popular of all tropical fruits worldwide. However, they probably are the most underrated of all fresh fruits used in the United States where the banana is the most popular fruit.
Good-quality mangoes will yield to gentle pressure when ripe. The coloring will be deep red and/or rich yellow with only a blush of green at the most. Medium to large mangoes are generally best. A ripe mango will smell fairly fruity on the stem end as long as it is not cold.
Avoid product that is too small, too soft or green (unless you are going to use it for cooking).
