There's nothing like our sun-drenched, super fresh, organic and wild seasonal fruits to stimulate your taste buds 😋
It is difficult to find fresh, organic fruit that has ripened on the tree.
Most of the time, the fruit you can buy in stores has been picked unripe. They have also been given chemicals to artificially extend their shelf life.
What about the fruit sold as "ready to eat" (or "ripe")?
Make no mistake, these fruits have not been on the tree any longer than the others. They've usually ripened in a container filled with ethylene gas.
At Jurassic Fruit, it's different.
Our fruits are:
really fresh - 5 days on average from the tree to your plate
ripen longer on the tree - they will be fully ripe usually between 1 and 4 days after receiving your order
bio, wild or “untreated” from small, trusted growers
No more tasteless fruit that doesn't ripen properly and has been stored for weeks in warehouses. Rediscover the real taste of fruit, the way you like it!

First, most of our fruit is grown without the use of synthetic fertilizers or pesticides. This results in nutritious, living soil and allows the fruit to absorb more nutrients from the soil, resulting in higher vitamin content.
Secondly, our fruits are not harvested at an early stage but at the ultimate point of physiological maturity. Their flavor and nutritional profile is therefore the most complete.
Thirdly, it has been shown that the amount of nutrients in fresh fruits and vegetables decreases the longer they are stored after harvest. Our fruit is delivered to you on average 5 days after harvest. Tropical fruits from the supermarket are usually harvested 3 weeks or more before they arrive in the store.
Finally, we select as many old, wild and nutrient-rich and antioxidant-rich fruit varieties as possible.
For example, have you ever heard of safu, a wild fruit from Africa that tastes like pizza, and contains rare fatty acids?
The jackfruit is another delicious wild fruit that grows in the tropics. It is one of the oldest fruits on earth. With us, you can take advantage of this reserve of vitamins and antioxidants, ideally usable by the body because they have been adapted to our biology for thousands of years.
Our fruits provide your body with the best nutrients of nature, for an optimal health.
More vitamins, better absorbable, means more energy and vitality every day.
So choose micronutrient-rich living foods and unleash your full potential 🌈💪
What exotic fruits can grow in Europe?
Much more than you might think!
Mediterranean countries like Spain, Italy and even France have microclimates that allow the cultivation of many tropical and subtropical fruits. Among them are avocados, bananas, anones, pomegranates, papayas, passion fruits and especially mangoes.
In fact, about half of our fruits are grown in the Mediterranean region, in the sunniest part of Europe.
The problem with the Mediterranean fruit you find in stores?
They generally come from monocultures that deteriorate the soil and the fauna.
They are over-irrigated because their soil is half dead and therefore does not retain water.
They are often treated with chemicals, both pre and post harvest. The only purpose is to make them shinier and more attractive on the shelves.
They are often picked too early, before they have fully developed their aromas. This is the case with avocado, for example, which are harvested after 6 to 9 months on the tree by most producers. The Jurassic Fruit ones are harvested after 9 to 16 months on the tree (fun fact: the old avocados are then next to the very young ones of the new bloom, on the same branches!).
Our producers cultivate differently.
They are small organic producers who practice regenerative agriculture. The soil of their "fincas" (farms) is alive and they plant a diversity of trees and plants based on the principles of permaculture.
For a full flavor, we ask them to leave the fruit on the tree longer. Fruits that are delivered to you only 5 days on average after harvest.

Asia, especially in the Southeast, is full of tasty tropical fruits.
We work with networks of certified organic and Global GAP (sustainable agriculture) producers in Thailand and Indonesia.
The most popular Asian fruits that we import to Europe are :
The yellow and orange colors of fruits often indicate the presence of carotenoids, especially beta-carotene and lutein, two plant pigments with antioxidant properties. Carotenoids are thought to help the body, especially the eyes and skin, protect itself from free radicals such as UV light.
Here are the exotic fruits with yellow or orange flesh that provide you with carotenoids:
Sapota (amarillo, lucuma, mamey, black, mammee apple…)
barbary fig orange
citrus fruits (orange, clementine, pomelo…)
durian (green shell, yellow flesh)
jackfruit (green skin, yellow flesh)
The red, pink and purple fruits contain anthocyanins, a valuable health pigment. It is said to have anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant and anti-diabetic properties.
In the red fruits (whose flesh is red), we count :
berries (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, etc.)
red barbary fig
pili fruit (dabai)
The lychee, the rambutan or the water apple are exotic fruits that are red on the outside but have white flesh on the inside.
Green is more a characteristic of immature fruits. Among fully ripe fruits, it is not a very common color.
On the other hand, there are many green vegetables, especially leafy vegetables, rich in chlorophyll.
The most obvious green exotic fruits are avocado, kiwi and lime. There are others, but their flesh is a different color.
Exotic green fruits with white flesh:
anones (chirimoya or cherimoya, cinnamon apple, atemoya, soursop, etc.). These are sweet fruits with green skin, pearly white flesh and containing many small black pits
guavas (including feijoa)
the marang - terap
Exotic green fruits with yellow-orange flesh:
jackfruit (the big green fruit with the dinosaur skin)
durian (the big green pungent fruit that is delicious but stinks like a very strong cheese 😋)...
some varieties of papaya
some varieties of mango (Harum Manis, Manalagui, Kiew Saview, Emerald, etc.)
