No wonder, that the Mangosteen (Garcinia mangostana), correctly named as purple Mangosteen, got the name Queen of the Fruits.
While You once tasted the Queen,
You will be addicted to the tantalising,
sweet and slightly sour taste
of her Majesty, The Queen of the Fruits.
While the Mangosteen (Garcinia mangostana) is native to Malaysia and Indonesia,
nowadays the tasty and healthy fruit
is also cultivated in Thailand,
Vietnam, Philippines, Brasil and Australia.
The Mangosteen isn´t just a mouth watering fruit, it´s also used in natural medicine. Mangosteen is rich in vitamines, mineral supplements, trace elements and dietary fibres. In South East Asia people prepare a tea from Mangosteen shells, which has a strong anti-bacterial effect. The Queen of the Fruits includes more than 40 Xanthones (Antioxidants), has a positive effect on the digestive system, should help against cancer, kills viruses and bacteria and is believed to have an Anti-Aging Effect. A fruit with so many positive qualities, must have a negative attribute as well, and it has. Be careful, if You open the tasty fruit by fingers or with a knife, the purple juice leaves nearly unremovable stains to clothes and fabrics.
Some people say, it´s worth a trip to the tropical kingdom of Thailand,
just to enjoy the tantalising Queen of the Fruits Mangosteen.
