Aussie Fruit Box



Mangosteen is a tropical fruit that is native to Southeast Asia and is known for its sweet, juicy pulp and unique flavor. The fruit is round and about the size of a small apple, with a thick, dark purple rind that is inedible. Inside the rind, the fruit is divided into several segments of juicy, white flesh that surrounds a large seed.

Mangosteen is low in calories but high in fiber, vitamin C, and antioxidants, which may help protect against a range of health issues. The fruit has been used for centuries in traditional medicine to treat a variety of ailments, including infections, diarrhea, and inflammation.

The flavor of mangosteen is often described as a combination of sweet and tangy, with a subtle hint of citrus. It is commonly eaten fresh or used in desserts, such as sorbets, ice creams, and pies. Mangosteen can also be juiced, and the rind is sometimes used to make teas or extracts.

When selecting mangosteen, look for fruit that is firm, heavy for its size, and free from blemishes or soft spots. Mangosteen can be stored at room temperature for up to a week, or in the refrigerator for up to two weeks. To eat mangosteen, use a knife to cut around the circumference of the rind, being careful not to cut into the fruit. Once the rind is removed, the juicy flesh can be easily separated into segments and eaten fresh.
