How do you eat a mango?

I was reading a book,and the people in the book were eating mangoes with the skin on them. Is that o.k. or are you always supposed to peal them?

Dear Fruit Lover
I think that author of that book was writing about something he/she knows nothing about! I have a series of international cookery books and in the one on the Caribbean cousine, they specifically WARN readers to peel all mangoes and to wash their hands after peeling them to prevent allergic reactions. So please do peal any mangoes that you eat!

I also have a nifty way of eating Mangoes:
Cut is half and twist apart take pip out.
Then cut into mango flesh length ways then width ways
But be sure not to go right through the skin.
Turn the mango half inside out and wholla, just bit off the cubes on the skin.

my favourite mess-less way of eating mangoes goes something like this:
cut around the middle of the mango with a knife
twist the 2 halves and pull them apart
now eat the insides with a teaspoon like you would a yoghurt!

I eat mango's EVERY day when they are in season and I have never eaten it with the skin nor have I ever seen anybody do that. Probably cont harm if the skin is eaten..
