yellow mangosteen

    11 responses

Ross starts with ...
I have a mature yellow mangosteen tree that is loaded with fruit. We do not eat them because they are too sour. Does anyone have a recipe/recipes for jam or similar that we can put these fruit to good use before the fruit bats discover them? I have found mangosteen butter on the web.

Hi Kath

Unfortunately most of the fruit that I picked went rotten so I composted.
There is another smaller crop on at the moment so I will pick as many as I can and send to you for propogation in the next few days. Look forward to hearing back from you. Attached are a few photos of our speciman tree.

Cheers
Ross

I have a tree just like yours and it is loaded with fruits. I tried eating it fresh with loads of sugar once but it was still too sour so I gave up the idea. I was in the garden the othe day and pick one. Was cooking a prawn coconut milk dish and thought why not slice up the fruit and throw it in?i did just that added some sugar to the cooking. I do that all the time with my cooking; never one to be able to follow recipes without adding my bits in. Anyway it turned out great, I also put some fish sauce in so it tasted like Thai prawn curry. My husband loved it.

If it is Asian yellows G.dulcis is very similar to G.xanthochymus but it way less sour.There are much more appealing yellow skinned Garcinia in South America like G.intermedia,madruno,brasiliensis,macrophylla.
Xanthochymus can be picked when mostly yellow.The juice is good for tossing salads and jellyfish stings.

Hi Ross,

May I know if you still have the Yellow Mangosteen fruit? Coz I plan to use them for my research.

Is it G. xanthochymus?

Thanks,
Ollie

Do yellow Mangosteens ripen on the tree? These were found under the tree and the rest are all green and have been for ages!!!

We have loads of yellow mangosteen and I hate to waste things. THankfully our family love tart fruits so we do eat them straight - make sure they're really ripe and only eat the inner flesh which is sweeter. I have also made a great jam ( and the fruit pulp almost sets without sugar or cooking!) , a yellow mangosteen chilli sauce, and it makes a beautiful sour Thai curry just substitute it for tamarind ( but add more). I also made a yellow mangosteen cheesecake which everyone loved. If you have a thermomix just put all the segments in and spin around on speed 4 for a bit and knocks all pulp off and can just pull out the seeds.

I pick them when they are bright yellow and just starting to be slightly soft when a finger pressed into them - they are sweetest then - if you get them when they've just dropped to the ground ( if you can beat the bush turkeys) they are good then too.
