Raw mangoes are a delicious and versatile fruit, but they can be tricky to store for long-term use. Fortunately, there are a few simple methods that can help you keep your mangoes fresh and flavorful for up to a year. If you want to store your mangoes in the refrigerator, place them in a resealable bag or in a regular plastic cover. Fold the lid and store it in an airtight container.
This will keep your mangoes fresh for up to a year. For green mangoes, it's best to store them at room temperature. Place the mangoes in a paper bag at room temperature and they will continue to ripen and become sweeter and softer over the course of a few days. Once the mango gives in a little to the touch, it's ready to eat.
If you want to freeze raw mangoes, cut them into slices after peeling them and let them rest in a tray covered with a cloth or parchment paper to absorb additional moisture. Then, store the peeled and sliced (or cubed) mangoes inside an airtight container in the refrigerator for about a week. You can also store raw mangoes in a clean, sun-dried glass bottle for more than a year, like dried spices. This way, you can use them for cooking like fresh, raw mangoes.
