How to Peel and Seed a Mango

See how to remove mango flesh from its pit and peel, and then slice and dice it.

Mangoes are delicious fruit with an enormous single seed. Since the meat from the mango holds tightly to the seed, slide a large sharp knife into the fruit and cut along the seed. Turn and repeat on the other side of the seed. Next, using the small paring knife, make parallel cuts on the mango, about 1 inch apart, but not through the skin. Invert the skin, so the diamonds stand out and carefully slice each diamond from the skin. Another way to slice a mango after it has been cut away from the seed is to peel it with the peeler or paring knife, then slice.
