How to Select Mangoes:
You know a mango is ripe when it softens gently when squeezed, it will also smell sweet and be very aromatic. Avoid mangoes that have shriveled skin or bruised skin.
How to Store Mangoes:
Unripe mangoes can be left to ripen at room temperature; a fruit that is still hard will ripen in about a week, or faster if it is placed in a plastic bag. Judge ripeness by the smell and feel rather than colour. Ripe mangoes can be kept in the refrigerator for a few days but should be enjoyed promptly. They’ll go black if left in a cold environment for too long.
