Asian Fruits and Their Benefits

Browse the latest bouquets in our collection below

We all know the importance of having some fruit and veg in our daily diet, especially in this health-conscious era.

Whether you’re flicking through a magazine, enjoying your favourite programmes on TV or even browsing the internet for your daily dose of interesting news, you are sure to come across something that reminds you to take care of your health. There are many ways to look after your physique and physical well-being, including keeping hydrated, doing frequent exercise, getting sufficient rest and having a healthy diet. And according to physicians, having your five-a-day could be one of the most important acts of self-care in your daily routine.

Although dry fruits and fruit juice also counts as a nice helping of fruit, fresh fruits will give you that refreshing burst of flavour to start your day.

What are the Asian fruits and their nutrition facts?

There are multiple types of fruit out on the market. There are some common fruits on our list from which we could easily find in the super market; apples, pears, citrus fruits like oranges and lemons, bananas, grapes, melons and many more. However, have you ever heard of exotic Asian fruits? With their multiple health benefits and high fruit nutritional value, you surely wouldn’t want to miss out on these!

Here is our favourite Asian fruit list:

  • Lychee: This is a small rounded fruit with a thin, rough skin. Lychees have a mildly sweet and plump white scented flesh encasing a large central stone. They contain a great amount of Vitamin C and Vitamin B-complex and they are rich in nutrients for producing blood.
  • Longan: The longan is a tropical fruit similar to a lychee. It has a thin brown shell and a sweet, white flesh that encases a smooth round stone. They are wonderful for boosting the immune system and increasing your energy.
  • Durian: Coined the “King of Fruits”, the durian is a large, spiky, brownish-green Asian fruit. It has a pungent smell and strong taste that people either love or hate. It is rich in fibre and minerals, though it should be consumed in moderation due to its high calorie content.
  • Mangosteen: This exotic, tropical fruit is known as the “Queen of Fruits”. Resembling an acorn, it has a thick and hard purple skin and a soft fleshy interior that packs a punch with its slightly sweet and sour flavour. It is packed with antioxidants, regulates blood pressure and is known to help women with menstrual issues.
  • Guava: Guavas are tropical fruits with yellowish-green skin. Classified as one of the top 5 healthiest fruits, they are rich in vitamins and can help lower blood sugar levels.
  • Starfruit: A distinctive sweet and sour fruit that has the shape of a five-point star when placed on its side. They are an accessory fruit and looks great in fruit salads, cocktails or even curry. They are fantastic for the heart and boosts digestion.
