how do you know if a mango has gone bad?
The easiest way to tell if a Mango is going bad is to smell it. Mangos have a very high sugar content, so as they age they tend to ferment. If there is a scent of alcohol, the fruit has likely been stored for too long. When a Mango has a rich fruity aroma, and is slightly soft, you know that it's ripe and ready to be enjoyed.
