Pakistanis never eat mangoes at room temperature
  • In Pakistan, mangoes are mostly eaten CHILLED.  If you are in a hurry, a bath of cold water (for the mangoes!) is just what you need.  Even if you really canít wait, you could try Pakistani mango milk shake by adding milk and ice cubes to the pulp and blend it. 
  • Besides enhancing the flavour of the Pakistani mangoes, chilling is believed to be able to neutralize the "heat" inside the fruit?
  • By putting Pakistani mangoes in the fridge, you can extend their shelf life. Once you remove them from the fridge, you have to consume them that same day as they deteriorate fast.
The season of Pakistani mangoes begins in May till August
  • This means that you could enjoy Pakistani mangoes for about four months.  For the die-hard mango fans, try freezing the mango pulp and you could still enjoy the heavenly taste even when the season is over.
  • Chaunsa is the golden temptation that has a slight perfume and weighs between 1/2 pound and 1 pound each, best eaten fresh.
  • Sindhri is ideal for shakes and juice because of its low fibre content -- at 3% to 5% compared to 27% of Chaunsa. 
Pakistani mangoes are rich in Vitamin A, C and D and other antioxidant vitamins
  • Besides, mangoes have more carotenoids than most other fruits - and that helps ward off colds and reduces the risk of cancer and heart disease.
  • Pakistani mangoes are high in fibre, and contain a small amount of carbohydrates, calcium, iron, potassium and a little protein.
Enjoying fresh Pakistani mangoes need not be messy
Here are some fun ways to eat a fresh mango:
  • Squeeze the mango gently until it's soft.  Poke or bite a small hole at the top end and suck out the mango pulp.  This is easier than you think!
  • Slice the two sides off, leaving the pip in the middle. Score the flesh by cutting lines lengthwise and widthwise, like a grid. Take care not to cut through the skin. Hold it up with both hands and push the skin side up and out. You now have cubes attached to the skin and can eat the mango off the skin. 
  • Cut a cross at the base of the mango, until the knife touches the pip. Peel the skin back and hold the covered part while you eat the flesh from the top, like peeling a banana.
  • Peel, dice and eat with a fork, spoon, or toothpick.
