Yep...I was surprised that the flesh was pure white, given the color of the juice!Guess all that color comes from pressing the peel which was as hard as cardboard in my sample.

I love discovering things like that... makes me feel like a child again.
You know, when everything under the sun was something wonderful... new and strange... yet to be discovered.

I found fresh Mangoteen at the Asian market, so I bought ONE... it was all I could afford, especially since I didn't know what it was going to taste like.

Apparently I wasn't alone in my reluctance, the week before they were being sold for $12 a bag of 4-5. The bags were gone and in their place the loose fruits. So I grabbed the opportunity to try one.

The inside of the fruit is indeed white... the texture, color and taste, reminded me of lychees... only its segmented like a citrus fruit.
The rind is somewhat like a pomegranate's in texture and toughness, only thicker. Its a deep beet magenta/red.

Healthy Foods 101: Mangosteen

General Description: Mangosteens grow on trees in warm climates, primarily in Asia. The trees produce a round, palm-sized fruit with a dark purple rind and white flesh. The flesh has a sweet-tart flavor. Mangosteen is popular in desserts in southern Asian countries. The purple rinds deliver antioxidants, in particular the antioxidant xanthones. Up until 2007, it was difficult to find fresh mangosteen fruit in the US, because shipping was restricted to prevent the spread of the Asian fruit fly.

Health Applications:

Beverage When made into a juice, mangosteens deliver antioxidants. It can be drunk on its own or mixed with other beverages.
