Origin and Producer
Native to Malaysia and currently cultivated in much of Southeast Asia and tropical areas of Central and South America, the mangosteen grows as a fruit of a rugged, resistant, and tropical tree. The evergreen plant grows relatively slowly, and its tree is one of the few that need no pesticides in cultivation. Up to 5000 fruits per tree are harvested by hand all year round. Our traded mangosteen comes to you all the way from Malaysia, Vietnam, Thailand, and Sri Lanka.
