Start by holding the mango with the stem-side down. Cut slightly off-center, just past the seed, to slice off a “cheek” and repeat on the other side, discarding the pit.
Cut slices in a crisscross pattern, careful not to cut through the skin. TIPS: Use a spoon to scoop out the cubes, or follow Steps 3 & 4. If you prefer mango slices over cubes, omit the crisscross pattern and make long cuts instead.
Use your fingers to press gently on the skin-side of each cheek, pushing the mango cubes out.
Slice cubes off as close to the skin as you can manage and discard the skin.
There are many ways to cut a mango. Other options are: 1. Use a mango fork to pierce under the stem end, peel the fruit and eat like a lollipop. 2. Peel the mango with a serrated knife, then cut around the seed (this one’s a bit messy). 3. Some online retailers sell mango corers, but we don’t recommend them for all mangos since the size of the pit varies between varieties.
