Mangosteen, a Much Loved Fruit. Tropical And Very Rare

MANGOSTEEN, QUEEN OF TROPICAL FRUITS.
I was thrilled to get this loving delivery from a cousin of a box full of mangosteens.
Most exotic and considered a luxury, these are highly seasonal and geographic, but ardently grown in Kerala, of late.
My father was one of the pioneers in bringing this to our place and the ones planted by him are still bearing lovely fruits, after nearly 50 years, I suppose.
Lockdowns and my current circumstances has been preventing a trip to the hometown, but this is a very very welcome gesture.
