I'm so sorry, last month I didn't post monthly series cause I didn't have enough time, a very busy month.
This week we will talk about an exotic tropical fruit as a monthly series.
Manggis (Garcinia mangostana) or purple mangosteen is a tropical fruit
It's a member of family Guttiferae.

Februari until April is the peak of the harvesting season.
So... I think this is the right time to explore this fruit.
This fruit is very popular in South East Asia.
Thailand is the highest producer of this fruit, followed by Malaysia, Philippines than Indonesia.

The fruit is mostly eaten fresh.
Both of the shape and taste are so exotic.
The fruit has a long in storage period, so... it's good for far away shipping.
Readers, have you ever taste this fruit?


  1. Dear Endah, I have never seen this fruit so far, let alone had a chance to taste it! It looks pretty cool, though. Thanks for featuring it on your blog.
    Warm regards,

    1. Thank you, Christina. I hope you can find this fruit and taste it.

  2. Endah, kawan saya pernah buat jem manggis...sedap katanya.

  3. Oh how I love mangosteen! If only they traveled better and where available here. Though I guess not getting more often makes them taste all the more delicious whenever we do go back to Southeast Asia.

    1. I think so. You have visited lots of places an taste a lot of special things from each place. How wonderful

  4. I have never seen it here or maybe I didn't pay attention because I didn't know what it was. Now, I'll keep my eyes open!
