How to Cut a Mango


After taking the plunge to finally learn how to cut up a pineapple, I decided I should take my new confidence and learn how to work with other fruit I may have been intimidated with.  The first one that came to mind was was the mango.  I figured it was a good time to learn, so I could also feed it to Judah.


First, take the mango and use your knife to find the flat pit.


Cut through the mango lengthwise down both sides of the pit.


Use a paring knife to create criss-cross incisions without slicing through the peel.


Invert the diced peels with your thumbs.


You can now either pull the pieces off with your fingers, or use the knife to cut them away from the peel.

  1. When I first went to Haiti, a missionary colleague warned me to be very careful when I ate a mango so that I wouldn’t accidentally swallow the seed! Well, when I cut into my first mango, imagine my surprise when I saw how huge it was! The joke was on me!
    The way you show how to cut them is the same way the Haitians do it. Only difference is that they eat it right off the “half shell” and don’t bother to slice them off.
    Thanks for the memories of Haiti in this posting!
