This evening, me and some friends bought a bag of fresh Mangosteen at an Asian market at the Ranch 99 Shopping Center in El Cerrito. (I forgot the name of the shop). I don’t recall ever having Mangosteen, so I was really curious to see what it taste like… plus, I wanted to get seeds to try to plant.
I was surprised at how thick the skin was and how hard they were to open… but once opened, they smelled good. I don’t know how to describe it; kinda tropical fruity. The texture of the fruit inside was kinda jelly-like, like a Lychee or Longan. It even tasted similar to a Lychee or Longan. It was pretty good :)
I saved the seeds and will try to plant them in the spring.
