Here’s how to cut a mango into a “Hedgehog”:
Grab a mango and ask an adult to help you slice the fruit from the pit.
After an adult has cut the mango on both sides of the pit, you’ll have two wedges.
Use a plastic knife to score the wedges into squares.
Don’t press through the peel with the knife, just into the flesh.
Then turn the wedges out with your thumbs!
