KENSINGTON PRIDE MANGOES

HOW TO SELECT A MANGO

It's not just about the colour...

When it comes to Kensington Pride mangoes, colour isn't always the best indicator of ripeness. Some Kensington Pride mangoes can retain a touch of green colouring, even when perfectly ripe.

Here's the four key things you should look for when selecting Kensington Pride mangoes.

Look for yellow skin, with an orange-red blush. An ideal Kensington Pride mango should have some of this colour, but don't rely on this alone.

Colour

Smell close to the stem to test for a rich, fruity, sweet and fragrant scent. If it smells amazing, go for it!

Scent

Gently squeeze the mango. The flesh of a Kensington Pride mango that's ripe and ready to eat should give slightly when gently pressed, but not feel soft or mushy.

Touch

Look for an ovate, full shape with plump flesh especially close to the stem and beak.

Rinse then slice through the curvature of the Kensington Pride mango, either side of the pit. 

Score the flesh, without cutting through the skin.

 

Use a spoon to scoop the mango flesh from the skin.

 

Remove the remaining mango flesh from around the pit.

 

Serve in a bowl, and eat fresh or topped with your favourite yoghurt, cream or ice cream.

HOW TO STORE A MANGO

Fridge or fruit bowl? It depends...

Store your mango in the fruit bowl

Store your mango in the fruit bowl when it's still  ripening. Your Kensington Pride mango is best stored at room temperature out of direct sunlight until it's ripe and ready to eat. 

Store your mango in a paper bag 
when...

Store your mango in a paper bag when you want it to ripen faster. Adding a banana into the bag with it will further speed things up.

Store your mango in
the fridge 

when...

Store your mango in the fridge when it's fully ripe.

Kensington Pride mangoes should be transferred to the fridge for up to a few days, only when they're ripe and ready to eat. 

Store your mango in a plastic bag 
when...

You should never store fresh mangoes in a plastic bag. They need fresh air to breathe.
