Mangos come in various varieties and are available at the grocery store, sometimes year round. Try and select mangos that are firm but not hard and let them ripen on the counter. They do not need to be refrigerated but I find that if slicing to eat or for a recipe an hour in the fridge makes the slicing easier.
