"Purple Mangosteen"

This sweet tangy taste is always great for dessert or whenever you're craving for one.


A tropical fruit originated from the Sunda Islands and the Moluccas of Indonesia.
This tree is fairly common only in the provinces of Mindanao and Sulu.
It's called "superfruit" as presumed to have a combination of:
1) appealing apects such as taste, fragrance and visual qualities,
2) nutrient and antioxidants
4) potential impact for lowering risk of human diseases.

Have you tried one today? ^0^
