One of the most praised of tropical fruits, and certainly the most esteemed fruit in the family Guttiferae, the mangosteen, Garcinia mangostana L., is almost universally known or heard of by this name.

There are numerous variations in nomenclature: among Spanish-speaking people, it is called mangostan; to the French, it is mangostanier, mangoustanier, mangouste or mangostier; in Portuguese, it is mangostao, mangosta or mangusta; in Dutch, it is manggis or manggistan; in Vietnamese, mang cut; in Malaysia, it may be referred to in any of these languages or by the local terms, mesetor, semetah, or sementah; in the Philippines, it is mangis or mangostan.

Hi Mahdi this is not Angoor. Entirely a different fruit - bigger in size as big as a tennis ball and the skin is thick and a little hard. You have to break open it, unlike grapes it can be eaten whole, but not this maggosteen. :))

We have grape fruit, Angoor (Anggur in Malaysia), mostly imported.
