Natural Home Cures - Mangosteen's Storing Quality
In dry, warm, closed storage, the mangosteen fruit can be held 20 to 25 days. Longer periods cause the outer skin to toughen and the rind to become rubbery. Later, the rind hardens, becomes difficult to open and the flesh turns dry.
Trials in India, have shown that optimum conditions for cold storage are temperatures of 39º to 42º F (3.89º-5.56º C) with a relative humidity of 85 to 90%; this will maintain quality for 49 days. Ripe mangosteen keeps well for 3 to 4 weeks in storage at 40º to 55º F (4.44º-12.78º C).
It is recommended that the fruits be wrapped in tissue paper and packed 25-to-a-box in light wooden crates with excelsior padding. From 1927 to 1929, trial shipments were made from Java to Holland at 37.4º F (approximately 2.38º C) and the fruits kept in good condition for 24 days. Fruits picked slightly unripe have been shipped from Burma to the United Kingdom at 50º to 55º F (10º-12.78º C).
