There’s just something about a freshly cut mango from a street vendor that can’t be beat. Part of that is the joy, and wonder, of watching them cut the fruit in front of you.

But how do they cut it so quickly while not chopping off one of their fingers? Cutting any fruit properly is truly an art form.

According to the National Mango Board, a recent survey finds that nearly half of American’s not only don’t know how to cut a fresh, whole mango but they consider it to be the hardest fruit to prepare.

Wilmer Valderrama understands the struggle, which is why he’s teaching his followers how to do it right.

Valderrama teamed up with the National Mango Board on Valentine’s Day to show people how to “undress a mango.” You can finally learn how to cut a mango like a pro.

“This Valentine’s Day I’m going to get flirty and really strip down and undress …. this mango (what were you thinking about?! Wow! Relax),” Valderrama writes. “Do you know that nearly half of American’s don’t know how to cut a mango? C’mon it’s a mango, don’t be that person at a mango party not knowing how to dance.. hahah Join me in undressing … this mango! (Again! I’m talking about the Mango!) #UndressAMango @mangoboard partner (and a lover of mangos, since I was 4 years old back in Venezuela!)”

¿Listo?

1. On a cutting board, position the mango so the stem is on top.

Slice each side just past the seed.

2. Cut vertically 1/4 inch away from the midline of the mango.
