Natural Home Cures - Mangosteen's Season & Harvesting


A t low altitudes in Ceylon, the fruit ripens and is harvested from May to July; at higher elevations, Mangosteen is harvested in July and August or August and September(1*).

There are two distinct mangosteen fruiting seasons in India: one from July to October (the monsoon season) and another from April through June.

Puerto Rican mangosteen trees growing in full sun will fruit in July and August. While mangosteen growing in shaded areas will fruit in November and December. Cropping is irregular, and the yield varies from tree to tree(2*) and season to season.

The first mangosteen crop maybe 200 to 300 mangosteen fruits(3*). The average mangosteen yield of a full-grown mangosteen tree is about 500 fruits(4*). The mangosteen yield steadily increases up to the 30th year of bearing when crops of 1,000 to 2,000 mangosteen fruits may be obtained.

In Madras, mangosteen trees between the ages of 20 and 45 have borne 2,000 to 3,000 pieces of the mangosteen fruit. Productivity gradually declines after that, though the mangosteen tree will still be fruiting at 100 years of age.

Ripeness is gauged by the full development of color and slight softening of the mangosteen fruit. Harvesting may be done when the mangosteen fruits are slightly under-ripe; however, they must be fully mature or not ripen after picking. The mangosteen fruits must be picked by hand or using a cutting pole and not be allowed to fall and bruise.
