How to Pick a Ripe Mango (Visual Guide + Tips!)

Trying to figure out how to pick a perfectly ripe, flavorful and sweet mango" You've come to the right place!

The Keitt mango above has a nice, vibrant green color going on, with a pink spot. It's not ripe though, which is indicated by the fact that the color is quite dark. By the time this mango ripens it will have lightened in color.

You may also be able to tell by looking at the underripe mango above that it's pretty firm. An unripe mango will generally have a smooth outer surface with very few wrinkles or blemishes.

Smell is another good indicator of ripeness. A ripe mango will have a fruity, sweet aroma that can be pretty strong. I can sometimes catch whiffs of the fruity smell of a ripe mango from all the way across my kitchen!

Unripe mangoes on the other hand have very little, if any fragrance. Overripe fruits can run the gamut far as smell goes: some smell cloyingly sweet, some stale, sour, and some even smell like alcohol due to natural fermentation that takes place as the mango goes bad.
