The mango is a delicious fruit, if you can get to it with a knife. This instructable will show how to cut a mango for handheld consumption, or how to prep it for eating with a fork, or for fruit salads.

Step 1: Materials and Tools

For this, you will need a mango, a cutting board and a knife.

Step 2: Split the Mango

Find the stem point of the fruit, and stand it up on it's end. Drive the knife into the mango, and round the knife around the pit. Do this on both sides.

Step 3: Score the Mango

Make crosshatch marks in the mango then flip it inside out. Your mango is now ready to be consumed from your hands!

Step 4: Flat Cut

When the mango is flipped inside out, with space between the squares, the skin is flat. Flatten the skin along the cutting board and fillet the skin from the fruit. Put fruit in a bowl and enjoy!
