I can never eat one without creating a big mess.

Do you peel it and then slice it?

Yip - peel it then slice round the pip thingy!

How do you get Mango cubes?

I'm not very good at doing them neatly (and tend to just peel and slice) but if you need cubes you slice through the mango as close to the pip as you can: cut criss-crosses in that half then pop it inside out (you have left the skin on) and remove them from the inside of the skin iyswim.

I saw this a few days ago and it helped me work it out!

I cut either side of the stone then cut grid pattern into the two halves without cutting through the skin, then push the skin upwards and cut the cubes carefully off the skin. Really need a diagram for this. I apologise for being about as clear as mud!!

I leave the peel on . Slice with a big knife down each side close to the stone. Then with each side piece you have cut off make three cuts one way and four the other, Not qite thro' just down to the skin like with a melon. Then kind of turn it inside out like a hedgehog . You can then cut the pieces off. Do the same with the other sides.

It's all hedgehog around here, too.

if you can peel and eat it without getting into a mess, then it is not ripe enough.
you can do the criss cross thing, and then scoop it out with a spoon (straight into your mouth), or cut segments round the stone (not a pip!) and eat it like footballers eat orange quarters.

Great link MrsJamin. It showed what everyone was explaining.

Witchandchips - at least when I'm making a mess next time I'll know its ripe!

Thanks everyone smile
