I love celebrating this amazing tropical fruit! Mangoes are one of my favorite foods on the planet, and they are the number one on my favorite fruits list!
It really doesn’t get much better than a mango at the peak of its season.
What do mangoes taste like?
- There are several different mango varieties and each differs slightly in taste.
- Generally, when ripe, mangoes are soft and juicy.
- The texture can be a bit fibrous when they aren’t ripe — and when they are ripe, the texture is like butter! (Keitt and Ataulfo varieties are known for almost never — if ever — being fibrous.)
- Mangoes are very sweet, subtly tangy with a hint note of honey flavor.
- They have a lovely fragrance, too.
Did you know the pit of a mango is flat? It’s true, and if you haven’t cut a mango before, it could be tricky. Check out my easy-to-follow photographic guide that takes you through the steps of How to Peel and Cut a Mango.
