When I was young I used to buy some mangos from the supermarket and I used to feel like I had bought a ripe melon on a stick, but now I am older I realised that this is not always the case. Sometimes we buy mangos and it is not as nice as we thought, there are not much flavor in it and sometimes it gets mushy after a while. This can be quite a disappointing experience for us.
Most of the fruits in the supermarket are quite ripe at the time of purchase. You can check the dates on the fruits so that you get to have them when they are really ripe.
You can have a melon with any dish that you want to serve, it can make the dish more special and tastier. You can also make some exotic drinks with mangos.
I have already talked about different varieties of fruits and how each of them can be used in different dishes. Mangos are high in vitamin C and other nutrients and it is also one of the fruits that can reduce the risk of developing colon cancer, they also have anti-oxidants and many other benefits.
A young mango that has not ripened is sweet and juicy and can be eaten just like that. There are some people who prefer them in salads too, as this is a good way to reduce the fat content in their diet. You should consider the health benefits of these fruits before buying them.
A ripe melon is ripe, but it has lost its seeds and the skin too. The texture can still be soft or hard depending on the maturity of the fruit.
Mangos that are immature are tender and can be eaten either as a fresh fruitor in juices. They can add the extra flavor to your food and they are good sources of fiber too.
It is not wise to buy a ripe mango just because it looks good, in fact there are some things that you should look out for when buying them. They should be firm and not watery.
If the skin is not broken and white, then you have just bought a very ripe mango. Also, the skin should be soft and with little color.
Some people will buy a ripe melon just because they have seen it on TV. This is often due to marketing as well, but it does not mean that the fruit is not good.
I have known people who have bought a mangosteen malini to add a spicy taste to their food, but have been disappointed, as it was not as tasty as they thought it would be. In fact they found it very bitter and overpowering.
I will always advise you to buy a ripe melon when you are in the market. This way you will get a tasty fruit and one that is nutritious too.
