Fruits of Thailand - 13 - Mangosteen - 'mang khout' - มังคุค

Plate 1. - MANGOSTEEN - 'mang khout' - มังคุค

Sometimes called the Queen of Thai fruit, these are a real treat. Select fruit that are slightly soft when you squeeze them. A firm squeeze cracks open the fruit casing revealing the delicious sweet white fruit.

When opening the thick dark red rind, be careful not to let the sap contained in the skin stain your clothes, which would leave marks hard to remove. The white juicy pulp is divided into 5 to 8 segments, of which 1 to 3 contain a seed. The sweet flesh has a delicate texture and will melt in your mouth.

Truly magnificent.
