Ask and you shall receive…. Mangosteens hit MN

Check out this article of Mangosteens in MN:

To put things in perspective, this article states that the fruit costs $1.88 each.  Out here we can get a kilogram for 25 baht.  In ‘English’ that equals about $0.80 for 14.  Yowza what a difference.  Though expensive, I would definitely recommend trying one if you see them.  About half of them contain a large seed(s).  Hopefully yours won’t since that would take up about half of the edible fruit. 

One more thing to note, the article also says that you need to delicately slice the fruit open with a knife. Actually, it works much better if you just squeeze and twist. 

Enjoy!!
