Often called the “Queen of Fruits”, Mangosteen is one of the most delicious with a snow white pulp, cool and refreshing to the taste and with a flavor which is something like that of the finest nectarine, but with a dash of strawberry and pineapple added.
The species name ‘mangostana’ is taken from the older local name ‘mangistan’ which is still used in parts of Indonesia, though a more common local name in Sabah is ‘manggis’.
