Mangosteen (garinia mangostana)

A small, pointed, tropical fruit, measuring about 13cm/7ins - with a deep purple, fibrous outer shell enclosing juicy segments of creamy-white flesh. At the present time, the fruit is little known in Britain, but this may change, as although it"s grown on a small scale in Java and the West Indies, large plantations are being established in Australia - but the trees are slow growing!

Mangosteen"s are used in Indonesia to make vinegar.
