Fruit of diversification, mangosteen helps to cover your needs in fiber and micronutrients, in addition to other fruits. The mangosteen is a fruit that has one of the highest levels of natural antioxidants. These characteristics and its refreshing side make it a fruit suitable for children and seniors.

A mangosteen weighs between 50 and 150 grams. Measuring 4 to 7 cm in diameter, fruit is round and slightly flattened. Their thick bark is smooth and greenish yellow. It becomes purple when ripe. The thick shell hides a tasty pearly white flesh with peach, pineapple and raspberry. Inside, the flesh is divided into five to eight quarters – arils – a bit like a clementine.

Relatively little used in cooking, this little-known exotic fruit is ideal to surprise your guests. Mangosteen can be the basis of delicious sorbets, but also many other preparations.
