Just like rice, mangos come in an unappreciated variety. Fresh mangos here in Houston predominantly come from Mexico or Florida, and fall largely into the large Keitt or Ataulfo varieties. Out in Asia, the celebrated mango appears in myriad forms, tart and sweet, soft and firm, to be enjoyed in multiple ways.
