Green mango salad
Yesterday I was at Premier Nursery in Fallbrook, CA where there is a moderate-size Haden Mango growing next to the office. It is currently loaded with green fruit between 2 to 4 inches long.
During the lunch-time break, the ladies working in the greenhouses came to the tree with a ladder and began removing many of the fruits, collecting about 10 gallons worth. They peel it at amazing speed with a parring knife and then cut the fruit just as quickly off the seed into large salad bowls with lettuces and other greens. The fruit would be considered "unripe" by many people, but had an excellent taste -- sort of what you might imagine a tropical cucumber would taste like.
