Indonesia is the home of some of the best tasting mangoes in the world. The fruit is not only rich in flavor, but also in nutrients. The antioxidant vitamins A and C, beta-carotene, and polyphenols are only a few to mention.
To pick that fresh and well-ripen mango, I noted these tips from Didi, Melissa’s mom:
- Look for that fresh green skin. The more vibrant it looks, the fresher it is.
- The end-shape of the mango – where the stem used to be – should be round. It tells if the fruit has grown to its maturity level and sweetness.
- The tenderness of the skin would also tell if the mango has completely ripen. If it is too hard, the mango is still raw and sour; too soft then it is too ripe.
With a pinch of salt and a drip of lemon juice to top it off, enjoy the freshness of every bite!
