Mangosteen Purple

I have a 5m tall mangosteen tree grown from a seedling through the post. I'm about 4km from the sea. I put it down the side of the house under some large palms between us & the neighbours house, it's growing beautifully. I'm hoping for fruit in Feb | Mat - Gold Coast, QLD 01-Nov-2017

Mangosteen Purple

Try growing them hydroponically in rockwool cubes w/acidic nutrient solution for first 10 months, with both foliar and root applications. Use excellent nutrients and avoid deficiencies. Frequent rooting gel apps every 10 days (place gel on lower stem). | Troy S. Mcneill - Troy, NY 10-Jun-2016

Mangosteen Purple

Mangosteen is called the Queen of fruits in Thailand. I always eat it at least 1 kilo a times. I'm not kidding!!! I'm Thai and eat a lots. It is very nice. I really want to grow it at my place then I will have fresh mangosteen to eat as much as I can :))) | Kimmy - Jimboomba, QLD 28-Feb-2015

Mangosteen Purple

Fruits successfully in coastal Sydney (frost free, warm temperate climate) if given a position in full sun, sheltered from winter winds, and watered deeply once weekly in dry weather. | Jerry Coleby-williams - Brisbane, QLD 18-Dec-2010

Mangosteen Purple

Is not pollinated, fruit and seeds are always clones of the parent. Ultra-tropical, killed at 4C. To grow properly it needs year-round hot, steamy weather. Not worth trying south of Mackay QLD. The best fruit in the world! | Eamonn O'loghlin - Brisbane, QLD 24-Sep-2009

Not supposed to grow in this climate, but is going fine so far in a self-watering pot. Growing slowly over winter, but certainly surviving and has done so through the coldest part of winter. This is my special project, as I dont expect it to survive, but I'll try my best to get this one to live here.

Yes i know this is brave of me in Brisbane but i'm stubborn and i just CRAVE the fruit, ever since i tried my first one, and unsuccessfully planting the seeds, i must have more! And we get such sad old hard fruits in the supermarket from Thailand, i will die happy if i can grow my own fresh ones.

update - I bring this inside at night now it's cold - husband laughs at me! It's hanging in there so far, during the day it's going in the greenhouse protected from any wind. One seedling died, still got two.

optimistic of me i know but i trimmed the top two leaves to encourage branching and thought i would try a leaf cutting. It's still green after 3 weeks so you never know!
BJ says... [3142 days 12hrs ago]
Make sure you keep it out of any and all sun. The sun is much more of a problem than the cold.

Is it still alive?
