Hello Doug,

Everything that I read, including David Joachim's "The Food Substitutions Bible", says you should have no problem if you substitute fresh mangoes for fresh peaches. A slight difference in taste, of course, and mangoes can be a bit sweeter than the peaches you are used to. However, rather than using a peach pie recipe and substituting mangoes, why not just use a mango pie recipe? Takes any guesswork out of the equation. See: Mango Pie
