One of the fruits we tried recently is the mangosteen.
The dark purple fruit is about the size of a peach.

The outer rind is thick, and the fragrant edible flesh found in the center is sweet and tangy; very citrusy with a slippery texture.
It comes from a tropical evergreen tree.

The segments are tasty, although their appearance is not awfully appetizing!
Everyone goes for the tiny segments first, which, unlike the larger segments, have no large pit inside.
All in all, there isn't much to eat in a mangosteen!
