Is a fruit which to the Malaysia’s is as much a delicacy as the Lychee is to the Chinese. A common mangosteen is perhaps a little larger than a mandarin, with a thick purplish brown skin. At one end you will find green petals surrounding the stem, at the other an arrangement of nodes indicating the amount of segments within. By removing the skin you will reveal the fleshy white segments within, some will contain seeds which can either be discarded or eaten
Uses are limitless for a healthy imagination, apart from being consumed as a fresh fruit it can be used in sorbets, parfait’s, mousses, the list goes on.
