We have a mango tree. It has produced A LOT of mangos. We are giving many away, eating tons and are freezing as many as we have room.

I still have a lot of unripe ones ripening in the laundry but they all tend to ripen at the same time.  I am wondering if I can refrigerate some of the green ones, to stop them from ripening for a week or so, and then bring them out to let them ripen afterwards, just so we don't have such a glut of ripe ones all at once.  

I'm just not sure if refrigerating them will stop them from being able to ripen once they are removed?
Does anyone know?

I had a quick google as was curious as we have some unripe ones as well and it says to never frigerate them before they are ripe:

I wouldn't for obvious reasons that PP has stated (can't put unripe mangoes in the fridge). I would just suck it up and cut them all up when they are ripe and put in the freezer in freezer bags. I do this with my mangoes biggrin.gif
