Kidney Mangoes

There are, apparently, over 1500 varieties of mangoes, I have raved about my current favourite, the Ataulfo, this small mango has the same yellow skin and yellow inner flesh, but it is not near as creamy in texture, nor as flavourful. Plus, being small, and kidney-shaped (thus its name), it does not contain much fruit flesh, though the stone inside is very thin, and it is easy to scrape out. Like the ataulfo, too, there is little fiber in it. Worth a try, but too much work for little gain, in my mind, however.
