Mangosteen

IMG_7676

When the supermarket visits make us see something unusual, a fruit or vegetable that was never tasted or seen, imagine the curiosity attached with it. This was the case with me when I had first seen Mangosteen a couple years ago. I had then decided to buy and check out how the fruit was from inside and see how it tasted. I was glad I did that. If it is available in markets near you, go ahead and give yourself the experience of tasting it at least once to find out the taste for yourself.

Mangosteen is a tropical fruit, native to Southeast Asia. The fruit is hard and quite big, but the edible part is very small. Opening up the outer cover springs a surprise at us. The outer covering protects a small soft, delicate pearly white part which is the edible portion of the fruit. This is so wonderfully arranged, each segment, it’s a joy to the sight. The fruit is delicate and melts in the mouth and has a sweet and tangy taste.

Enjoy!
