Thailand Day 5

Mangosteen

This is one of my favorite local fruits, called mangosteen. It somewhat reminds of lychees in terms of texture.

It tastes very s
weet as the fruits are picked when they're ripe, as opposed to what we're mainly used to in countries where fruits get imported.

To cut open a mangosteen, you'll use a knife and make a cut around the fruit horizontally without cutting through the whole fruit. Then, the top of the fruit can be lifted off like a lid and the white, seadlike shaped core is revealed.

You'll only eat the white core which can be spooned out very easily or picked with a fork.
