These are dark purple tropical fruits which are rich in Vitamin C.
The outer rind is thick, but have been known to be medicinal. The skin contains useful anti-oxidants. The fruit itself is very rich and juicy. It has a sour and sweet flavour. These fruits also contain good amounts of dietary fiber and are rich in minerals and vitamins. The Mangosteens sold at VAER are from an orchard in Thenkasi. They have a short season so enjoy the fruits when available….
