Naked Mangosteen !!!

In the picture to your right you see Mangosteens without the peel, in their naked glory, ready to be freeeze dried.
As you can see, the fruit itself is pretty small about the size of a Clamentine.
It is white and has a peach like texture.
It gets it's touch of purple from the rind. If you look closely, it also has some pigmentation closer to the center, which is from the seeds.
The fruit is taken and freeze dried and packaged under hygenic conditions, then it is ready for sales.
"Freeze drying (also known as lyophilization) is a dehydration process typically used to preserve a perishable material or make the material more ...en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freeze drying"

After freeze drying the fruit becomes more intense in flavor making it sweet and sour, crunchy to taste!
