Tips to know:
- To properly cut a mango, get a good idea on where the seed is located. This is a seed that is generally flat and large. You’ll want to cut from the stem to the bottom, cutting parallel to the seed. After this cut has been accomplished, you should have two sides of the mango. Take each of the two slices and begin to make a pattern creating smaller cubes. After the cubes have been formed, you can simply pop them.
- Mango juice can often lead bad stains so it’s best to keep the juice away from carpets.
- For every pound, plan on getting close to 2 cups of diced fruit.
How can I save money?
- Since mangos can spoil easily, they should be consumed immediately. Only purchase the amount necessary.
- Buy fresh mangoes since manufactured mangoes can cost more; additional costs to manufacture mangos will add to the total price of the product.
- When buying mangos, try to shop around on the internet or in your local market to compare prices. Comparing prices will enable you to choose the product that has the lowest price. Also, check local weekly ads for sales.
