Green Mango

Also known as "raw mangoes," green mangoes are picked when just mature. They are the unripe versions of your traditionally ripe mango. Their firm skin is green, and the flesh is crisp, fading from a soft yellow hue to creamy white. Their flavor is predominantly sour, and, due to the presence of oxalic and citric acid, can be slightly bitter in taste. The raw mango actually contains higher amounts of vitamin C and B than when it is fully ripe. The fruit can be eaten raw or cooked. Raw, it makes an excellent addition to spring salads, or in Mangai sadam, a traditional South Indian style mango rice dish! Cooked, the fruit can be incorporated into chutneys and curries.
