Mangosteen – The queen of fruits

I previously mentioned durian, the so-called king of fruits, so obviously I had to show a few photos of its partner in crime, mangosteen (มันคุด [mankut]).  This tropical fruit has a tough, thick skin (that can easily stain your clothes, as well) with juicy, sweet-tart tasting flesh inside. It’s called the queen of fruits because it can help to cool your body down after durian heats you up.  Both fruits are commonly eaten in conjunction because of this supposed property as well as their complimentary tastes. Yet another delicious tropical fruit.
