Exotic Fruit Lovers rejoice! We’ve got the crown jewel, the queen of all fruits, the elusive, seductive, and much revered Mangosteen. It’s said that Queen Victoria would bestow a knighthood to anyone who could get her a fresh mangosteen. Since UPS wasn't invented at the time, alas, no titles were granted.
The Mangosteen is round with a reddish and purple rind with a white creamy flower-shaped flesh. The flavor is so unique that it is hard to describe. People that taste these things for a living say that it feels like a combination of a Lychee with strawberry and peach notes. We just think it tastes pretty darn special.
The rind of the so-called Queen of Fruits and Fruit of the Gods has been used for its medicinal properties for centuries, but the texture and flavor are what truly leave you wanting more.
Getting a fresh Mangosteen is a rare privilege, one that we can provide you, no knighthood necessary. You are most welcome!
