Mangosteen

This weeks trip to Eden Center provided mangosteen which are only available for about 6 weeks in the spring-early summer.  Most mangosteens sold in the US are grown in Thailand. Flowery, sweet, tangy and juicy– I adore them.

The journalist and gourmand R.W. Apple Jr. was quoted as saying about mangosteens,

“no other fruit, for me, is so thrilling, intoxicatingly luscious…I’d rather eat one than a hot fudge sundae, which for a big Ohio boy is saying a lot.”

David Wolfe, a raw foodist mentions the benefits of mangosteens repeatedly in his book, Eating for Beauty.  Some natural foodists believe that the peel contains important cancer fighting phytochemicals.
