Fruit Trees > Tropical Fruit Trees > Mangosteen Purple
Often referred to as the Queen of Fruits, this tropical evergreen tree is native to Asia. The fragrant edible flesh can be described as sweet and tangy, citrusy with peach flavor and texture. Suitable only for tropical climates or a warm greenhouse. The female and male flowers are borne on separate trees but the female produces fruit on its own - parthenocarpicly. Trees are seedling grown so their sex is not known.

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 :)))

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.

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!
