There are a few key indicators that you can use to tell if a mango is ripe and ready to eat. First, take a look at the color of the fruit. Ripe mangos will have a deep, rich color – usually a deep yellow or orange. If the fruit is still mostly green, it’s not quite ready yet. Another indicator is the feel of the fruit. Gently squeeze the mango – if it gives slightly to the touch, it’s ripe. If it feels hard or firm, it needs more time to ripen. Finally, sniff the stem end of the mango. If it smells sweet and fragrant, it’s ready to eat!
