We offer unique tropical fruits from all over the world. We have more than 150 sorts of different tropical and subtropical fruits. Not all are yet full grown, so not everything is for sale right now. We made a recipe for a delicious tropical fruit salad for 4 persons. In this fruit salad you can use some tropical fruits we have in stock. In the following paragraphs we’ll run through the recipe step-by-step.
First we need to know what ingredients we will need. We need 4 kiwis, which you can buy at your local supermarket or greengrocer. We also need 2 mangos. These fruits are also available at your locals. Finally, we need some tropical fruits. We need 4 pieces of mangosteen. In our webshop there are currently 2 sorts of mangosteen available: Garcinia Intermedia (Lemondrop) and Garcinia humilis (Achacharu). For this fruit salad we recommend the Achacharu, because of the sweet and soft taste. Of course, it is also a possibility to use the Lemondrop or combine the two (2 pieces of each fruit). That’s all up to you.
This 4 person tropical fruit salad can be made in less than 15 minutes. Follow the steps down here.
- Cut the mango along both sides of the pip or use a mango cutter. Then cut a number of stripes into the seedless pieces of pulp, without cutting through the skin. Then do this also in the transverse direction, so that blocks are formed. Spoon the cubes out of the mango peel.
- Peel the kiwi and cut it in half. Then cut them into square cubes.
- Cut the peel of the Achacharu all around. Remove the top part and take out the pulp wedges.
- Mix the Achacharu, mango and kiwi.
- Enjoy the tropical fruit salad!
How to cut a mangosteen
A mangosteen is a small, round, tropical fruit. The dark brown/purple skin appears to be hard, but is easy to cut when the fruit is ripe. Always use a sharp serrated knife. Once you have removed the top part of the fruit, you can see that the inside contains 4 to 7 small fruits. You can take these fruits out of the mangosteen as wedges. Pay attention to seed that may also be in the pulp wedges. These seeds and the peel of the mangosteen are not edible.
