Mangosteen

Widely grown in the tropics, the mangosteen is not related to the mango. Mangosteens are rarely imported to the United States. They are about the size of a tennis ball, and the segmented flesh is soft, cream-colored and juicy, with a hard dark purple-brown skin. The sweet, slightly tangy taste is a cross between a pear and a strawberry.

Season: available year-round
