Summer colds, be warned: Champagne mangoes pack more than 300 percent of your daily vitamin C requirement—five times more than other mango varieties. They’re at peak season now, and they make other mangoes seem a little blah. Smaller than green-red Tommy Atkins, these yellow-skinned mangoes have creamy texture, floral fragrance, and ethereal sweetness with honey and vanilla notes, making them the ideal summer sweet treat. You can keep the flesh on the skin, "porcupine-style."
