Colour is not the best indication when it comes to ripeness as the skin of a perfectly ripe mango may still have a green tinge or small brown dots. Instead, look for fruit with an appealing mango aroma and smooth skin. Ripe mangoes should be ovate in shape with plump, firm flesh that gives slightly when pressed gently.
Mangoes should be stored at cool room temperature until ripe. Once ripe, place them in the refrigerator to slow the ripening process for up to four days.
