How to Eat Mangosteen

June 5, 2013


One of my favorite fruits in Thailand is the mangosteen which is in season at the moment. It’s regarded as a “super fruit” due to it medicinal properties. It can be a bit difficult to eat as the purple will stain your hands and clothes if you are not careful. I’ve always opened them with a segregated knife. But this illustration seems to offer a much easier way to open them. I will try that next time.

    I always run my thumb nail around the fruit’s girth, but this method definitely seems cleaner and faster…
