#Exotic #Asian #Fruits Week: #Mangosteen

A friend of ours travels to Thailand with some frequency and constantly raves about the fresh fruits she enjoys on her trips. By far her favorite fruit in which she indulges is called “mangosteen.” She’s hardly alone in her opinion of the delectable fruit, according to legend, Queen Victoria offered a reward of 100 pounds sterling to whoever could bring her a fresh mangosteen. The fruit is hard to come by stateside and is often canned rather than fresh, but for a few weeks during the year, specialty markets in the U.S. and Canada will hold mangosteen sales.
