I grew up in a family where we had mangoes with the skin intact in fruit salad.
After I got married, I was exposed to the "fact" that "nobody" eats the skin of mangoes.
It is true that I have never seen anyone else besides my childhood family eat mangoes, which would explain why I have no idea that you would not eat the skin of mangoes.
Perhaps, my childhood was too impoverished that we even ate the skin of mangoes. Perhaps, eating skin of mangoes is not an unusual practice, I don't know.
A reason that seems valid is that there is too much chemicals on the skin. But then we would have to say that about strawberries, peaches, apples, wouldn't we?
And what about people in India, China, Japan, Germany, Indonesia or Brazil? Do they eat mangoes with the skin?
It seems such a waste not eating the skin.
Q1. Is it unusual to eat the skin of mangoes, unusual to include mango skin in fruit salads?
Q2. Does mango skin have more chemicals than the skin of other fruits, which we have to eat with their skin intact.
