  • Mangosteen


Mangosteen is a small, round, tropical fruit. The stiff, dark brown purply skin seems tough, but it is easily cut when the fruit is ripe. The inside of the mangosteen contains 4 to 7 small segments. You can remove these from the mangosteen. The flesh is white, soft juicy and sweet. There can be pips in some pieces. The pips and the skin of the mangosteen are not edible. The mangosteen from Nature's Pride are available in 'small' and 'super' sizes.

Growing and harvesting

The mangosteen is a slow-growing tree with a closed, pyramidal crown and a dark-brown to black flaky bark. The branches of the mangosteen develop symmetrically: the branches stem from the axils of the leaves on the opposite side. The olive-green leaves are oval-shaped. The tree can grow as high as 25 metres and live for hundreds of years. It can take as long as seven to ten years after planting before the tree bears fruit. The fruit can be harvested when it begins to turn red. The harvest period lasts for about four to five months in a single stretch. The fruits are harvested by hand or with help from a ladder, depending on how high the fruit grows. Next, they are taken to the warehouse. In the warehouse, the mangosteens are washed, checked for quality and sorted according to size. After that, they are packed and transported to Nature's Pride.
