The colour can be misleading, and the only real way to determine whether these large mangoes are ripe is by touch. The skin should give slightly to the touch, and even then the mangoes could rest for a few more days.
Keitt mangoes are fiber-free with a thin seed, allowing for a greater amount of smooth-textured, orange-yellow flesh. Keitt mangoes have a tangy sweet flavour with a hint of honey.
