I’d Like to Try a Mango. How Do You Cut It?
Cutting a mango is really quite simple. A mango has a long, flat seed in the center of the fruit. Once you learn how to work around the seed, the rest is easy. Be sure to always wash the mango before cutting and use a clean knife and cutting board.
Step 1: Stand the mango on your cutting board stem end down and hold. Place your knife about ¼ inch from the widest center line and cut down through the mango. Flip the mango around and repeat this cut on the other side. The resulting ovals are mango flesh. Most of what’s left is the mango seed.
Step 2: Cut parallel slices into the mango flesh, being careful not to cut through the skin.
Step 3: Scoop the mango slices out of the mango skin using a spoon.
