Fresh mango hunting’? A lot of people have a hard time picking out a ripe Mango. The first step is to look to see if the skin has a reddish or yellowish color, rather than completely green. That said, not all mangos change color, so the second sign is to feel if it has a soft interior. It should feel a bit like a ripe peach when squeezing. Not overly mushy but also not as completely hard.
