How do I sweeten a fresh mango and also fresh kiwi fruit for a salad?

I bought what a thought was a fresh mango and kiwi fruit.  They both had a 'give' when pressed.  I put both in a paper bag for a few days and tried to ripen them further.  I need them tomorrow for a fruit salad.  I peeled and chopped both of them and they are not sweet at all.  Could I soak them in a simple syrup or sprinkle them with sugar?

I have been using a lot of agave syrup lately, might work great in a fruit salad made a head of time.  Honey might work as well.

I drizzled some honey over the cut mango - what a difference it made!  Thank you so much for your suggestion - it is greatly appreciated.

When i have fresh fruit that just isn't quite "there", I use a sprinkle of aspartame on them. It makes them seem exactly at the peak of ripeness with no other "flavor".
