Mangosteen is now a very hot fruit, because the nutritional value of mangosteen is very high, so it is favored by everyone, but because mangosteen is a tropical fruit, so we don't know much about mangosteen, so what good method can we choose high-quality mangosteen? Let's have a look.
How to choose a good mangosteen
1. Look at goody
Fresh mangosteen fruit should be green. The softer the green is, the fresher it is. If the fruit turns brown or black, the mangosteen is likely to have rotted. This kind of mangosteen is very good. We recommend that you pay more attention to these details when selecting mangosteen, so that we can better select fresh mangosteen.
2. Pinch the shell
Fresh mangosteen shell is soft and elastic, which can recover quickly after compression. If the shell of mangosteen you choose is too hard, it means that the mangosteen is not fresh. If it is too soft, it can be blistered for too long or rotten. This is a good method to use when selecting mangosteen, and the effect is very good.
3. Look at the sepals
Sepals refer to the bottom end of mangosteen. Generally speaking, mangosteen has four to eight sepals, and the number of sepals is equal to the number of petals of pulp. But it is not the best to eat the most or the least number of pulp petals. As long as the bamboo is fresh, the number of pulp petals will not affect the taste and taste of the bamboo.
4. Weigh up
Mangosteen is a kind of fruit rich in a lot of water. If the weight of the mangosteen you choose is too light compared with other ones, it means that the mangosteen is not fresh and may be dried, so it is not suitable to buy. This is what we need to pay attention to. If we can pay attention to this situation, we will be able to choose high-quality mangosteen better.
