Are you new to shopping and consistently purchase either overripe or underripe fruits? Well, at least when purchasing mangoes, ensure that you are never duped by the fruit salesman. Mango is appropriately referred to as the "King of Fruits" because it comes in varieties including Alphonso, Chausa, Totapuri, and Dasheri. Its juicy flavour and sweet perfume aid in warding off the heat during the sweltering summer months. Take note of all the advice on buying mangoes as you read this article through to the finish. 

The conventional way is the most straightforward for selecting ripe and tasty mangoes. Simply take the mango in your hands and feel it. An immature mango will have a tough skin, whereas a ripe mango will feel softer. The mango can also be lightly pressed, but don't press too firmly because you don't want to dent the fruit. Pick softer mangoes that are smooth from all sides and don't have any cuts or punctures by gently inspecting them from all angles. 

Tip #2 

The scent test is another simple way to determine whether a mango is ripe. A mango that is fully ripe will always have a strong, sweet scent close to the stem, whereas an unripe mango will either have no scent at all or a very weak one. When purchasing pineapple and melons, this tip can also be helpful. 

Tip #3 

Most shoppers choose a mango colour test when making their purchase. Well, this isn't the most accurate method of determining the mango's level of maturity. There is no precise way to determine whether a mango is ripe or not because different mango kinds have varied colours of yellow, orange, red, and green. 

Tip #4 

Mangoes may have been soaked for some time before being eaten by your mother or grandma. Through the process of thermogenesis, this traditional practise aids in cooling the mangoes. Mango consumption without first soaking them may result in digestive issues including loose stools. 

Right Storage 

The refrigerator is the ideal place to keep ripe mangoes to slow down the ripening process. In the refrigerator, ripe mangoes will remain fresh for at least 4-5 days. Unripe mangoes that you have purchased should be wrapped in newspaper or paper bags and kept at room temperature. They will mature more quickly as a result, after which they can be stored in the refrigerator.
