Purple Mangosteen (Garcinia Mangostana), generally known as Mangosteen, is a tropical evergreen tree believed to have originated within the Sunda Islands and the Moluccas of Indonesia. It is grown particularly in Australia, Southeast Asia, Southwest India and different tropical regions including Puerto Rico and Florida in the USA. The tree grows from six to twenty-five meters tall. The fruit of the Mangosteen is nice and tangy, juicy, extremely fibrous and with fluid-filled vesicles (like the flesh of citrus fruits). It has an inedible, deep reddish-pink colored rind (exocarp) when ripe. In each fruit, the fragrant edible flesh that surrounds every seed is botanically endocarp, i.e., the inner layer of the ovary. Seeds are almond-fashioned and sized.
Extraordinarily valued for its juicy, sensitive texture and slightly candy and bitter flavour, the Mangosteen has been cultivated in Australia, Java, Sumatra, Mainland Southeast Asia, and the Philippines. The 15th-century Chinese language record Yingyai Shenglan described Mangosteen as mang-chi-shih (derived from Javanese Manggis), a native plant of java of white flesh with delectable candy and sour taste.
A description of Mangosteen can be found in the Species Plantarum by Linnaeus in 1753 and the fruit was found into English greenhouses as early as 1855. The tree usually does now not grow well outside the tropics. In his book, “Hortus Veitchii”, James Herbert Veitch says he visited Java in 1892, “to consume the Mangosteen”.
There’s a legend that Queen Victoria was prepared to give a reward of one hundred pounds sterling (a small fortune in the 19th Century) to anyone who should supply her with “the sparkling fruit”. Despite the fact that this legend may be traced to a 1930 book written by the fruit explorer, David Fairchild, it isn’t substantiated by any recognised document. It probably accounts for the unusual designation of Mangosteen as the “queen of fruit”. The journalist and gourmet R.W.Apple, Jr. once said of the fruit, “no other fruit is so thrillingly, intoxicatingly luscious…I would rather eat one than a fudge sundae, which for a big Ohio boy is saying something.”
