    If you think the peel is the best part and they don't cause you any
    gastric distress, why ask?

    Because he's trolling?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mango

    "Potential for contact dermatitis

    Mango peel contains urushiol, the chemical in poison ivy and poison
    sumac that can cause urushiol-induced contact dermatitis in susceptible
    people.[11] Cross-reactions between mango contact allergens and urushiol
    have been observed.[12] Those with a history of poison ivy or poison oak
    contact dermatitis may be most at risk for such an allergic
    reaction.[13] Urushiol is also present in mango leaves and stems. During
    mango's primary ripening season, it is the most common source of plant
    dermatitis in Hawaii.[14]
    A view of Mangifera Indica in South India
    [edit] Food
    White oblong fruits on a background of much thin, but much longer leaves
    An unripe mango of Ratnagiri (India)

    Mango is generally sweet, although the taste and texture of the flesh
    varies across cultivars, some having a soft, pulpy texture similar to an
    overripe plum, while the flesh of others is firmer, like a cantaloupe or
    avocado, or may have a fibrous texture. For consumption of unripe,
    pickled or cooked fruit, the mango skin may be consumed comfortably, but
    has potential to cause contact dermatitis (above) of the lips, gingiva
    or tongue in susceptible people. In ripe fruits which are commonly eaten
    fresh, the skin may be thicker and bitter tasting, so is typically not
    eaten."

    But yeah, if it doesn't bother him, that's great.

    I know. That's why I deleted the website he included.

    I still peel potatoes if I'm making mashed potatoes.
    I don't like potato skin in mashed potaoes. I like them in boiled or
    roasted potaoes
    but not mashed.
