This is the fkesh from mango #1 had a sour citrus orange taste to it. Also in the pics the flesh has these orange spots. Never seen this before. Also has no fiber.

Did you pick these yourself or did you buy them already picked?  They could not tell yuo what you bought?

Mango #1 is PPK/Lemon Meringue and what you are seeing is jelly seed.  This is common to this variety.
Mango #6 is Carrie

#6 was definitely carrie and was delicious. I believe #2 is possibly lancetilla? it is a huge mango or even keitt? and the PPk #1 was not crazy over, had a sour orange taste, dunno if its suppose to taste like that, but if it is, im not liking it.

#1, PPK, does not look like it was totally ready to eat.

Both Lancetilla and Keitt are late season mangoes.  If these were picked now, they would not ripen and would be only edible as used as a "green" mango.
