When buying a mango, pay attention not only to the color of the fruit, but also to the softness, which is easily determined by touch. The peel of the ripe fruit should loosen under light finger pressure. Don’t ever buy a mango that already has brown spots.
Unripe fruit can be stored at room temperature for a few days and ripe fruit in the refrigerator, but not more than 10 days.
In stores you can also find dried mango, mango processed into a delicious jam, in the form of syrup or puree. Mango vinegar is also known.
Mango cannot be cut in half as it has a stone in the middle that is very difficult to separate from the flesh of the fruit. Therefore, cut the mango by cutting the flesh of the fruit to the stone, then cut lengthwise and widthwise to the skin peel and bend in half. So we seemingly get squares sticking out of the middle and then peel them off.
