Frequently asked mango questions?
How do I know if a mango is ripe?
Green mango is a raw mango. For most mangoes, a red, orange, yellow color without much green is a great indication. Having said that there are some variety of mangoes that are ripe even under green skin. A great indication is that a ripe mango will be able to be slightly press, a slight give will indicate it has a soft flesh inside.
Can mangoes be cooked?

Can mango be frozen?
Yes, if you have extra mangoes in season. Freeze them so you can use them during offseason. it’s definitely much better and cheaper than using canned or store-bought frozen. It’s very easy to freeze mangoes – here’s a step by step on how to freeze mangoes in season.
How do I speed up the ripening of mango or how do I slow down the ripening of mangoes?
This is always a dilemma, isn’t it? Sometimes I can’t wait for those mangoes to ripen while at other times I purchased too many so I want to slow them all ripening at the same time.
To speed up the ripening of mangoes just place them in a paper bag at room temperature. When ripe place them in the fridge. Placing mangoes in the refrigerator will slow down the ripening and buy more time with the ripe mangoes.
Do mangoes need to be refrigerated?
Ideally, no! Mangoes will stay well at room temperature for a week. However, if the mangoes are ripely placing them in the refrigerator will slow down the ripening process. Freezing mangoes is another option if you have more than you need. Always better to freeze them to let them get wasted. Right?
How do I know if the mango is bad?
It’s best to use mangoes once they are ripe. Overripe mangoes will start to get mushy and sour if not used in time. Eventually, they get brown and start to smell.
