Episode 19 - Mangosteen

On this episode of the Produce Picker Podcast we take a look at a particularly exotic fruit, the Mangosteen.

Learn how to pick, open, and eat a Mangosteen. This delicious fruit is relatively new to the U.S. and is still hard to find. However, if you are able to buy one of these, it's worth a try.

The Mangosteen has a citrus like flavor and is quite refreshing. The inside looks like a white tangerine but has its own unique taste.

Much like the pomegranate, blueberry, and cranberry the Mangosteen is very high in antioxidants which is sure to make a much sought after fruit in the future.

Ask your local produce person to order you some Mangosteen today and give them a try, you won't be disappointed.

Special thanks to my friends at Frieda's Produce for sending us a case to sample and feature on our show!
