Exotic Mangosteens

Exotic Mangosteens, originally uploaded by tidaknama.

Eating in Penang is not complete without a taste of its exotic fruits. June is the season for Durians and Mangosteens. Mangosteens are unique. Firstly it is the purple cardboard like skin that you have to crush between your palms to open. Careful as the purple stains are difficult to remove.

Then it reveals its moist white flesh in segments lie an orange inside. The taste is hard to describe. It has that tangy slightly sour bite of pineapples with a milky sweetness.
