There aren’t many things more mouthwatering and delicious than a ripe, tender, sweet mango, But sometimes it can be hard to choose the right one. So, as we make the sorbet, I’ll show you how to pick the PERFECT mango, and easy ways to cut it up perfectly! Mangos are one of my favorite fruits, and they are in season RIGHT NOW!

Here are a few ways to find the perfect mango:

  1. You can do the squeeze test like you would with an avocado or peach
  2. Do NOT go off of color, because there are so many different varieties with different colors
  3. For the honey mango, you tell if it is ripe by the wrinkles

Thank you so so much to the National mango board for the mangoes and for your amazing website that literally taught me so many cool mango facts and recipes. You guys should definitely check it out at mango.org !
