So helpful!  Now I'm craving mango.

I love mangoes, but I always end up with a stringy flesh that I can't chew. I've known people who eat it without peeling it 'cause most of the 'nutrients' are in the skin. And yes, even the "smooth skin, strong scent" advice doesn't help & I've tried at different levels of ripeness. - Is there a variety of mango that isn't prone to getting stringy, or am I doing something else wrong? Thanks in advance to anyone who helps me.

interesting way. Asians usually peel the skin with a peeler and then cut from there.

I broke down and bought a mango slicer - it cuts the fruit off the stone, so all that's left is doing the cross-hatching (we call it hedgehogging!). The fruit left on the stone usually gets eaten straight off, over the kitchen sink with mango juice running down my chin...
