Mangosteens have a hard, dark purple external skin which is inedible, and a soft delicious, sweet white fleshed interior which should be eaten! They are no relation at all to mangoes.

Garcinia mangostana

The Mangosteen flesh is delicate and sweet, with a soft creamy texture.

Look for dark purple coloured skin, uniform in colour. The fruit will be light for its size...

Run a knife around equator of the mangosteen and twist the halves in the opposite direction to separate. The white segments inside can be removed by hand or with a small fork. Try not to eat the seeds...

Mangosteen is a good source of Vitamin C, soluble fibre and folate...
