YELLOW MANGOSTEEN

Yellow Mangosteen compliments of rare fruit AustraliaBotanical Name: Garcinia zanthochymus
Description

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.

Question & Answer

Would they fruit in pots and i live in north ryde sydney From:

This one is better grown in the ground as it is quite a large plant 6-8 meters when grown in the ground. If grown in a pot it is going to stay small however I am not sure how it would go being a much larger plant. Not recommended but perhaps worth a go if it is something you are passionate about as an experiment. In relation to climate they are very sensitive to frosts so you would need to protect them especially while they are young.

Just germinating, has 2 leaves after nine months. Notch the wallaby has taken up sitting on the seed trays during the heat of the day. I had better pot it up.

Feb 2012 - Planting day has finally come after several years in a pot my tree is now about a foot high, time to go in the ground.

How did it go with the frost? Still going?
Tim1 says... [769 days 3hrs ago]
This got frosted to death before it made it into the ground, I plan to try again but to have the right protection around it
