Raw mango, as the name suggests, is the unripened version of a standard mango. Picked when just mature, raw mangoes are also known as “Green mangoes.” They are firm and can be oval or slightly kidney bean-shaped, depending on the variety. The mangoes aren’t fully developed, so the seed is small and thin and the firm flesh is crisp. Diced Raw mango can be added to both hot and cold dishes, and are especially a tangy addition to salads and slaws.
