Mangosteen

Mangosteen

Mangosteen, also known as the "queen of fruits," is a tropical fruit that is believed to have originated in Southeast Asia, specifically in countries such as Thailand, Malaysia, and Indonesia.

Seasonality wise, Mangosteen is available all year round. To know when the fruit is ripe, you can look for a fruit that has a dark purple colour and gives slightly to pressure. If the fruit has become very hard, it may be overripe. To store, it should be kept cool, in the refrigerator for up to a week.

Mangosteen is a fruit that is highly valued for its sweet and juicy flesh. The fruit is most commonly used for fresh eating, juicing, and in desserts. To enjoy the fruit, you simply need to cut it in half or squeeze until the skin cracks, remove the skin and eat the flesh segments within. The flavour is described as a combination of sweet and tangy with a tender and soft texture. Mangosteen can be blended or juiced to make delicious and healthy drinks and is often used in Asian cuisines as a topping or ingredient in desserts. The fruit can be pureed to make sorbets or added to cakes and tarts as a flavourful and attractive topping. The flesh of the Mangosteen can also be used as a filling for dumplings and other sweet treats, making it a versatile ingredient in the kitchen.

Mangosteen is a good source of Vitamin C, dietary fiber, antioxidants and minerals such as potassium, calcium and magnesium. Eating Mangosteen may also help with digestion, boost the immune system, and improve heart health. Additionally, Mangosteen is known for its unique sweet and tangy flavour, making it a favourite among tropical fruit lovers.
