    Why would you eat a green mango? I bought one once that wasn't ripe enough when I cut it, and I couldn't get past the first bite.

    On the other hand, when eating a nice ripe one, it's so juicy that you're not likely to need water.

    I "love" green mangoes. I will eat a green mango if I can buy it in the supermarket soon (a month or two later). I eat it with salt!
