The Mangosteen Fruit
For many people the Mangosteen Fruit has never been heard of – for the other few that have traveled to different parts of the world like South East Asia, Thailand & the Philippians just to list a couple of countries that you may have had the pleasure of seeing and tasting this delicious fruit, you would know that it’s one of Nature’s super foods and is a delicacy in these countries. The Mangosteen has been around for centuries and has been used throughout time. One of the main uses would have been for Natural Medicinal benefits you received from the “Queen of Fruits”.
Mangosteen has become a hot topic among scientist and Dr’s in the past century and a lot of research and studies are being done on this fruit to try find out why this fruit has such great benefits for the human body. What has been discovered lately is that the Mangosteen fruit as a whole consists of 40 Plus Xanthones this means the Pulp as well as the Rid of the fruit when consumed as a juice we gain all the benefits of the Mangosteen Fruit.
The fleshy snowy white bit of the Mangosteen (the part you eat) consists of roughly 3 Xanthones and the rid (the outer skin) consists of roughly 40 so combined you getting 43 Xanthones from one fruit whole fruit. When we apply this into a juice again using the whole fruit, hopefully you wouldn’t want to eat the rid , well you could try but I can assure you this would not be the tastiest part to eat and will leave your mouth with a sour tingly sensation for some time – Not pleasant. The fruit itself is edible and tastes delicious with a comparable texture of Litchi the only words i can use to describe the taste are sweet and tangy. Do yourself a favour when you’re down the local fruit market again, if you see some fresh Mangosteen be sure to try some make sure you buy a lot as you will wish you did later.
The Mangosteen tree grows anything from 6 to 25m in height and most reach fruit bearing in 5-6 years but typically require 8-10. The amount a single tree may yield is depending on many factors such as Age and climate being the biggest factor. A mature plant would yield roughly 500 per season were a 30-45 year old tree would yield approximately 3000 fruits.
