Mangosteen Fever!!!

Stay away from us. We are having mangosteen fever!!! Yeeeeehaaaaaaa! Yes yes yes! A colleague of ours brought mangosteen and rambutan last week to office. What else do we do ? We gals munched down like a hungry monster. I for one didn't join em(cause I don't really like to eat mangosteen or rambutan but I do eat; just don't like) but I'll blog about this. Just today a Japanese guy also brought mangosteen to office. Yipppeee dudah!

Sorry gals(Fab5), I korbankan you gals in my blog.

Anyone dosen't know what is a mangosteen or how mangosteen looks like(you must not be from SEA then) then look at both pictures below. Ahhh the purplish color of the fruit.

Do you know that Mangosteen is dubbed the Queen of all tropical fruits? Because those who have tried mangosteen consider it to be one of the most delicious fruits on earth. Now you know.

Ohhh WOW yum yum, those white flesh eat em clean but remember to spit the seed. For first timer better ask your friend to teach you how to eat em. Posted by Picasa

Mangosteen is found in South East Asia(tropical) and is rich in Xanathones.

Exerted from Mangosteen Fruit Benefits (checkout the 22 health benefits from mangosteen aka xango at the click of the link):
"Xanathones are a unique biologically "active" compound. Active means they couple with other molecules and become very beneficial to the systems of the body. Xanathones are powerful and strong antioxidants. Xanathones can kill cancer cells. They enter the cell wall with antioxidants and can even kill intracell bacteria before it has a chance to mess with the cell's DNA. There are at least 24 Xanathones in the pericarp of the mangosteen fruit. No other fruit or single food has this quantity".

So now you know the goodness in mangosteen. People are making money out of xango juice. But why buy the juice when you can just stroll to the pasar malam or market and bought some for yourself and family. Hmmm makes me wanna eat.

not much of a mangosteen fan but yea, tastes good! i prefer it's sibling called 'sete' or at some areas, 'meste'. both fruits look very much alike, it's hard to tell the differences, for some.

'tis usually smaller in size, less watery n is sweeter. i relish the feel of it's texture in my mouth first,... the sweetness comes a bit later. :DD

shame of me, for not being familiar in this fruit, do you believe that I actualy taste it when i was 20 something... when my hubby (he's from General Santos City of Mindanao, Phils , were both from Phils.)introduce this fruit to me, this is more like rambutan in taste but not in appearance.
