  • Soft enough to leave a finger indention if you push on it. It should have a lot of red color some yellow, not much green, but some is okay. Yum! I love mangos!

  • It should be firm but yielding to pressure from your finger tips. Color of the skin varies by variety, so the best way is to give it a little squeeze, and a little sniff. Just about any fruit you purchase should smell sweet and fruity when you purchase.

  • When it's mixed with tequila and ice in a glass, it's ripe :)
