Customer Tips & Reviews Mangosteen Purple
We have a young mangosteen grown from seed (approx 1.5m) and it is deciduous, leaves turn a brilliant red during late winter, then re-sprouts com September
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
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).
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 :)))

Would love to grow any Mangosteen - problem now is lack of space. Have never tried the fruit either.
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.

I love the taste of these fruit! But I am not sure if they will grow as far south as Brisbane.
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!
