Wild Mangosteen

Tasted wild mangosteen which is also known as Santol, the texture of a pear which is a little grainy but more juicy like yam beans in Krabi, Thailand recently.

Santol in its Raw Form

The version that I had was marinated with chili, salt and sugar which was sweet and very spicy at the same time. I read that the combination of marinate is actually called phrik kap klua and often sold together with mangoes by fruit street stalls in Thailand.

Plus it made its way into the 10 most exotic fruit in the world according to HotelClub. Most of the fruit that are in the list can be found in South East Asia.
