On the bright side summer also brings with it an abundance of juicy fruits with naturally high water and nutrient content that act as natural thirst quenchers. Make maximum use of these seasonal fruits to replenish the lost fluids and build the body’s immunity to numerous ailments. Going for the organic version of these fruits means you get to enjoy all the natural goodness without the harmful effects of pesticides.  So let us go ahead and take a look at 5 of these organic summer fruits and the numerous benefits they bring.

  1. Mangoes:

    This sweet juicy fruit is so delicious that it makes you forget that it actually packs in a whole lot of goodness.  Mangoes are a rich source of nutrients like Vitamins A, B6 and C, Iron and Magnesium to name just a few. Organic mangoes offer the additional advantage of not being artificially ripened by dangerous chemicals like calcium carbide (which pose a serious health hazard).

    In addition to enjoying the fruit as a whole, mangoes can also be used to create summer favourites like aam panna, aam ras, chutneys, pickles, chunda, murabba, ice cream, lassi, shakes etc. In many states in India mangoes are also added to a number of cooked dishes. A lot of people are actually willing to put up with the heat and dust of summer, just because it heralds the arrival of their favourite fruit – mangoes. It is no small wonder then that it is known as the ‘King of Fruits’ right!


  2. Watermelons:

    Did you know that watermelons are categorised as both a vegetable and a fruit? Having a water content of 92% watermelons are also packed with nutrients like Vitamins A, B6 and C, Potassium and Lycopene (again to name just a few).  The high water content makes watermelons an excellent low calorie thirst quencher. Of the nutrients Lycopene deserves a special mention as watermelons are an excellent source of this power packed antioxidant, which works to prevent heart diseases and certain types of cancer.   

    Eating pieces of watermelon cut with the rind or gulping down a glass of freshly squeezed juice (stay off the sugar if you want to enjoy the low calorie benefit) are the ways you can enjoy this summertime treat.

  3. Muskmelons:

  5. Pineapples:

    Besides being a rich source of Vitamins B, B6 and C, Potassium, Calcium, antioxidants like Flavonoids, enzymes like Bromelain among others, this fruit also packs in a lot of juicy flavour apt for the summer heat.
