Thailand Day 5
This is one of my favorite local fruits, called mangosteen. It somewhat reminds of lychees in terms of texture.
It tastes very sweet 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.
