How to cut a mango?

Mango is an amazing fruit – so sweet, delicious and juicy but some people avoid buying it because they don’t know how to prepare it. In fact it’s pretty simple to cut a mango if you know how to do that.

Mango is a fruit with a solid fibrous seed inside and it’s quite challenging to cut it through. The trick to cut a mango is to cut off the pulp around the seed. When you buy mangoes, choose heavy fruits with lovely aroma, ripe fruits yield slightly if you press them with your fingers. The color of skin can be different and don’t show the ripeness of the fruit.

Mango skin is not edible; it has bad taste and may cause allergy and rash.
