What is it?
Mangos are a peach-like, juicy fruit, with a single large kidney-shaped seed. The fruit is grown mainly in Asia, Central and South America, and Arabia and is known for its pleasant flavor. The fruits are 2 to 9 inches long weigh between 8 and 24 ounces. The skin is smooth yet fibrous. Mango fruit matures 100 to 150 days after flowering. The flavor is best when the fruit is allowed to ripen on the tree. Upon ripening, the fruit skin varies in color according to species. It can appear pale green or yellow with marks of reddish coloring. The flesh is dark yellow to orange color, depending on its variety. There are hundreds of varieties of mango found globally!
What’s so good about it?
Mango has a delicate tropical flavor. The flesh is extremely juicy and somewhat fibrous, closely resembling a peach. The flavor profile is a combination of orange, peach, and melon. It blends very well with other fruit juices including passion fruit, strawberry, banana, and coconut. One of the major advantages of mango is the diversity it provides in terms of its ability to blend well with most ingredients while still carrying the exotic flavor notes of the fruit itself. Mangos contain dietary fiber and are packed with vitamins, antioxidants, and minerals. Vitamins include Vitamin C, Vitamin A, and Vitamin E.
How to use it?
Mango is one of the most commonly consumed tropical fruits. Its exotic flavor profile and tropical taste are appealing in both sweet and savory applications. It can be incorporated in juice blends, nectars, frozen desserts, smoothies, cocktails, salad dressings, sauces, and marinades. The culinary applications are endless when using mango.
