Botanically it is known as Diospyros peregrina. It is a beautiful, delicious fruit of tropical southeast Asia produced by a handsome tree that under favourable conditions can reach a height of 9.5 metres (31 ft). It has thick, dark, green glossy leaves; the flowers are large and polygamous. The fruits are about 3 inches in diameter, round to oblate in form and dark purple in colour. They have thick, hard rinds surrounding a large cavity in which is found snowwhite flesh in segments resembling those of a mandarine orange. The mangosteen is juicy, delicate in texture and of delightful, slightly tart flavour.
