Mangosteen

Mangosteen

The mangosteen (Garcinia mangostana L., family: Guttiferae ) is a tropical evergreen tree, believed to have originated in Southeast Asia, the Sunda Islands and the Moluccas. WordNet (r) 2.0 defines mangosteen as 'East Indian tree with thick leathery leaves and edible fruit [syn: mangosteen tree, Garcinia mangostana], 2-3 inch tropical fruit with juicy flesh suggestive of both peaches and pineapples.'

Spanish speaking people call it as mangostan; French as mangostanier, mangoustanier, mangouste or mangostier; Portuguese as mangostao, mangosta or mangusta; Dutch as manggis or manggistan;Vietnamese as mang cut; Malaya as mesetor, semetah or sementah or as in any of the above languages; in Myanmar (Burma) as men-gu and in the Philippines as mangis or mangostan.

Mangosteen is a slow growing tree that grows from 7 to 25 meters tall. It requires a wet lowland tropical climate. The plant does not survive temperatures below 410 F (50 C). The mangosteen trees can yield more than 1000 fruits in a season.

The mangosteen fruit, known as the queen of fruits is 2-3 inch diameter. The outer purple-black skinned shell (1/4 to 3/8 inch thick rind) of the mangosteen fruit is hard. The snow-white, juicy, soft flesh pulp is segmented like an orange with 4 to 8 triangular segments, if ripe enough. The taste of the mangosteen fruit is mild acidic, like that of an underripe strawberry or like that of a prune. The mangosteen fruit is usually eaten fresh. It is also canned or frozen. The mangosteen juice is now commercially available.

Recent research studies on mangosteen fruit and juice suggest that it is helpful in preventing and stopping diseases such as cancer, diabetes, heart disease, Alzheimer's disease and other chronic diseases. It may be used to treat infections, fever, body pain, inflammation, diarrhea, cystitis, dysentery, eczema and a variety of other health problems.
