poem by Richard Tipping

WHEN MANGOES ARE RIPE, THEY WILL HAVE QUITE A BIT OF RED ON THE SKIN – THEY WILL ALSO SMELL VERY SWEET AND ‘MANGO-Y’, WITHOUT EVEN CUTTING THE SKIN.

WHEN YOU SQUEEZE THEM, THE FLESH SHOULD GIVE SLIGHTLY – EXACTLY LIKE AN AVOCADO, PEACH OR PLUM.

BUT LIKE THOSE OTHER FRUITS, YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO TELL IF IT’S HORRIBLY SQUISHY AND ROTTEN ON THE INSIDE.

MOST MANGOS AT THE STORE ARE UNDERRIPE, BECAUSE THEY’RE PLUCKED EARLY SO THE RIPE-WHEN-PICKED MANGOES DON’T mango643SPOIL THE REST OF THE BATCH BY ROTTING ON THE TRIP TO THE STORE. THEY’LL FEEL VERY HARD, EVEN WHEN SQUEEZED.

HAVE FAITH! IF YOU CAN’T FIND ANY RIPE ONES, AN UNDER-RIPE MANGO WILL RIPEN IN A DAY OR TWO IF LEFT AT ROOM TEMPERATURE, IN SUNLIGHT. BE CAREFUL THOUGH! YOU ONLY HAVE A DAY’S WINDOW TO EAT THE SUN-RIPENED MANGO, BECAUSE THEY START TO GO BAD A BIT FASTER THAN NATURALLY RIPENED MANGOES.

AND NOW FOR THE…
