Mangosteen

with one comment

Prominent in tropical countries, particularly in Southeast Asia, the inedible purple rind reveals a sweet white inside that is enjoyed sporadically throughout the year.

There is a great amount of medicinal use with the mangosteen. According to WebMD: “Mangosteen is used for diarrhea, urinary tract infections, gonorrhea, thrush, tuberculosis, menstrual disorders, cancer, osteoarthritis, and an intestinal infection called dysentery. It is also used for stimulating the immune system and improving mental health.”

Mangosteen are banned from importation to the continental United States.
