That is when it is so ripe that it does not taste good to you. Some wonderful dishes and salads require a "green" mango. Rotten is too ripe, brown and extremely sticky and gooey. Sometimes right off the tree the mango is so perfectly ripe that you can eat skin and all - I am not saying it is good for you. So like many fruits - overripe is up to you.
Mango over ripe: While the peeling is still on, it is too soft and squishy, has turned a darker color or spots appear. When it is peeled, it will have a brown color to it, the smell is somewhat strange If you taste it, it won't be good. In otherwords, if it doesn't look and smell fresh, it's not going to taste good.

How can you tell if a mango is ripe and ready to eat?I can pick out a mean melon, but I've yet to have mastered the art of picking a mango!

Has anyone ever eaten green bananas?I am aware that some cultures eat them. If you have a recipe, please share it. And no, I am not talking about plantains.
