In addition to the stunning aesthetic and taste properties this delicious fruit has a high mineral elements content.
It turns out that the king of the fruit kingdom, durian, has a «sweetheart» — a mangosteen, known as a «queen of fruits». Thick purple peel of this exquisite fruit hide inside a snow-white sweet and sour flesh — it is this part of the mangosteen which is edible, excluding the seed contained.
The fruit taste is light and refined, but the main advantage of the mangosteen is the content of vitamins C and E, as well as riboflavin, calcium, magnesium, zinc and other elements necessary for the human body.
the cost is seasonal, ranges from 35 Baht per kilogram.
