I love Mangoes, but....

pescatarian | Sep 29, 200605:35 PM     19

I just eagerly cut into a ripe mango at my desk. I love mangoes. When they are right, they are sublime. But occasionally they have a weird flavour. Like the one I just cut into. Not appetizing at all. It's not a "bad" flavour, as in it might be off, it just doesn't taste the way a mango should taste. These ones are from Brazil. Does anyone have any tips on picking good mangoes - i.e. does it matter where they come from - Mexico, Brazil, etc? I do know that I've had organic ones in past that had fantastic flavour, although I don't know if it was just coincidence.
Just wondering. Maybe it's just luck and depending on the season like a lot of fruit.
