The pulp clings desperately to both peel and seed, and it usually turns into a mushy mess by the time you free it. Despite this, the mango is one of the most popular fruits in the world.

A fruit grown throughout the tropical and subtropical world, the majority of mangos available in the United States are from Mexico, Haiti, the Caribbean and South America. Before it ripens the mango's peel is green and the flesh firm; as the fruit ripens the peel turns yellow and red and the flesh softens. The flesh is bright orange with a flavor cookbook author Jean Anderson aptly describes as "peachlike with a hint of pine." The flesh clings tightly to a flat, oval pit that runs almost the length of the fruit. The easiest way to remove the pit is to slice the sides ("cheeks") of the fruit away from it. To cut chunks of mango, slice the unpeeled cheeks away from the pit then lay the cheeks cut side up and score the fruit down to the peel in a crosshatch pattern. Push the fruit upward from underneath so that the cubes pop up and separate, then run a knife between the flesh and the peel to cut away the chunks. Peeled mango is also available canned and frozen. Mangos are high in Vitamin A and C, potassium and beta carotene.
