Mango - Fruit


Mango fruits are oval and egg shaped with smooth, soft skin.  The skin is usually a combination of green, red, and yellow. The interior flesh is bright orange and soft  with a large, flat pit in the middle. Mangos and papayas may be confused, but papayas are more bell-shaped than mangos.

Mango fruits are green when they are unripe.
