Happy to see mangoes turning colour. We had plucked them a few days ago. They are plucked when they are green and now I see them changing colour. Unless they have colour all over they will not be fully sweet. Must have patience. Just tasted one - delicious. You do get mangoes in the market but most are artificially ripened. What's cooking at your end?

I can only buy mango from the supermarket. Some mangoes are very sweet. I think by the time the mangoes reach our country, they are already ripe.

Unless they are fully ripe they are not marketed.

@allknowing No, it does not work this way. Nearly 90% of all the fruits and vegetables come from elsewhere, and they are put in supermarkets as soon as they can. Some mangoes are ripe because of long distance between Bangladesh or Australia to here, and some are not ripe. If we buy green mango, we can use for cooking or just wait for it to ripe.

@scheng1 That is taking a risk if you are buying unripe mangoes.

I remember your mangoes. I think they change the color very soon. I still remember they were quite green before.

I am busy these days. This is the first year that we could sell some - while they were green. We have kept some for us which I have been distributing to friends and neighbours too. The whole house is smelling of mangoes - a pleasant smell

@youless They were plucked and for which I had to pay. All in all it was a good deal. This year even could sell jack fruits our very first sale in all these 26 years.

You are very lucky to get them fresh off your trees. I have to wait until they are sold in our supermarket. I love them!

I don't like artificially ripened mangoes. I want naturally ripened. We are just cooking some fish for lunch

We have our own trees and the mangoes become ripe on their own. You just need to pluck them when they are fully mature and keep them wrapped in straw or paper. Perhaps looking at the colour of the mango in my picture you thought it was ripened artificially. You are wrong there.

@allknowing Is that a small mango? We call small mangoes indian mangoes. I love the longer mangoes when ripe. I like the indian mangoes unripe and green

I prefer them when they ripe on the trees. Of course, then the birds have a party.

If you let them on the tree until they change the colour you will not get any (lol)

Do you have a mango tree? Are they supposed to be bright orange?

It is nice that you are able to enjoy fresh mangoes. Our only option for them here is to buy them at the market.

As long as they are not artificially ripened, all is well.
