Shopping at Lulu Mall can certainly leave you thirsty. Instead of quenching your thirst with carbonated drinks, Pulp Factory offers you healthier options with a variety of exotic fruits. Though you may be familiar with some of them, here are some juicy facts that will give you a fresh perspective on them.

Dragon fruit

Also known as pitaya, these exotic looking fruits contain around 60 calories each and are rich in vitamin C, B1, B2 and B3, and minerals such as iron, calcium, and phosphorus. This is definitely one of the best “super fruits” out there.

Custard apple

Custard apple is an ideal snack and dessert for those who wish to put on some weight. A calorie-laden fruit, the sugar present in it peps up your metabolic rate, thus, stimulating the appetite levels. The more your appetite is, the better the food intake will be. This, in turn, can help you gain weight.


The health benefits of guava include the treatment of diarrhoea, dysentery, constipation, cough, cold, skin care, high blood pressure, weight loss and scurvy.

Longan fruit

Longan is used as remedy for stomach ache, insomnia, amnesia, and dropsy. The fruit is said to invigorate the heart and spleen, nourish the blood and have a calming effect on the nervous system. A spoonful of longan tonic made of equal quantities of longan flesh and sugar simmered in water till it is reduced to a syrup consistency is recommended twice a day.

Tender Coconut

No need to introduce this one, tender coconut is known for its myriad uses for hydration. Did you also know that tender coconut is sometimes injected intravenously in emergency cases? It is used as a blood plasma substitute because it is sterile, does not produce heat, does not destroy red blood cells and is readily accepted by the body. Application on the body prevents prickly heat and summer boils and subsides the rashes caused by small pox, chicken pox, measles, etc.
