also to other countries not only to China,” said Antarjo, the detikFinance, Monday (11/21/2016).
According to some of the countries that could be the target of export for example Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and the
United Arab Emirates. However, he regretted export to Europe and the other is still a bit when I have opened the tap to export
to that country.

little price is nice. The mangosteen fruit is that it costs 15 euros, depending on the size sometimes 8 or 10 if a kilo. If 1 kg of the
10 seeds price 150 euro / kg nearly USD 2.2 million / kg did not try anything special dibayangin if for example the export of 1
ton how. if in Indonesia 1 euro to 2 kilos, “said Antarjo.

Europe, but why so little amount exported to Europe, Yang eat mangosteen in Europe a lot, the skin is also useful to medicine,”
