Mangosteens

If you’ve ever tasted a mangosteen, the memory of this sweet/tart fruit with plump juicy segments, will haunt you. Yes, it’s that good and, until recently, not available on the mainland of the U.S.

They’re grown widely in the tropics of Asia, and now they’ve been successfully cultivated in Puerto Rico. By next summer, they should be more widely available here. For now, they’ve been sighted in Manhattan and Los Angeles.
