Mangosteen

A Tropical Fruit native to South East Asia including Thailand


The only common affiliation a Mango and a Mangosteen share aside from both being tropical fruits is that the latter has an extra five letters in its name. Other than that, they have distinctly dissimilar characteristics in every area of appearance, texture and taste. These small apple-shaped fruits have leathery brown skins that turn purple as they begin ripening. The flesh looks similar to that of a lychee but the taste is vastly different.

The fruit is native to Southeast Asia, but largely cultivated in Thailand and known as the king of all Thai fruits. Their creamy white flesh is divided into a number of segments, each one sporting a large seed. Their plump body is then surrounded by a  thick tough skin. The flesh has a cool fresh sweet fragrant flavour similar in taste to grapefruit which locals believe is a great chaser to the Durian FruitThe way to enjoy this fruit is to eat it raw.
