Fruit Trees > Tropical Fruit Trees > Yellow Mangosteen
Yellow Mangosteen is a round fruit with very tart yellow segments. The high acidity makes it ideal for jams and jellies but removing the seed and skin can be time consuming. Easier to grow in the subtropics than the purple mangosteen, but the flavour is altogether different. The tree grows well in full sun and shade. It will tolerate and continue to fruit heavily in drought conditions. The tree is very attractive, with large drooping leaves and a layered form. The fruit can reach 8-10 cm in length and looks highly ornamental when in the tree.

I water if it hasnt rained in a couple days.  Attractive tree, I dont expect it to fruit for at least 2-3 more years.
