Mangosteen is called the queen of fruits, it tastes wonderful and has amazing health benefits. It’s botanical name is Garcinia Mangostana. Our family friends have lot of mangosteen trees in their farm and they sent us a huge basket of mangosteen fruits last week, we had a delightful week eating mangosteen daily!
After enjoying the fruit for a few days, I wanted to know all about it. I experimented with making a tea out of the rind and also made a healing juice from the fruit. I had a fun time collecting all the information about mangosteen and I was really surprised at the vast health benefits and how many cultures have been using mangosteen for years to treat various diseases.
