Ripe Mango Ready to Cut

Different types of mangoes will look different when ripe, but all will yield slightly if you gently test the flesh by pushing it. I like to hold the mango in my hand and gently tighten my grip to see if the fruit yields just a bit - that's a good sign. Ripe mangoes feel heavy for their size and will start to give off a lovely mango aroma when they're ready to eat.
