They are slowly changing colour

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?

@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.

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
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.
