Where do mangosteens come from?
EAT ME mangosteens are sourced in the subtropical regions of the world: south-east Asia and South America. Amazingly, mangosteens grow on trees that can easily live for hundreds of years and can reach heights of more than 25 metres. A tree only starts to produce its first fruit after 7-10 years. The trees have a striking shape and resemble a pyramid. The branches grow from the axilla of the opposite leaf which. results in a very symmetrical appearance. The harvest takes place once a year and lasts as long as 4-5 months.
