What is the best way to ripen a mango?

 

Q. What is the best way to ripen Mangos?

 

A. A mango is ready to eat when the skin color changes from being all green. As mangos ripen they turn yellow, orange, red and purple or any combination of these colors. Select slightly firm mangos (have a little give when squeezed) with a sweet aroma near the stem end. Once sliced, the mango flesh should appear to be pale yellow to deep orange in color. Avoid purchasing mangos with sap on the skin or bruising. For more information on mangos, check-out the Mango Board.
