How to Open a Mangosteen

Mangosteen has officially become our new favorite fruit. We’re obsessed with it! And while we were in Penang our Uncle Ng showed us the easiest way to open one…

image

Did you know that the number of “leaves” on the bottom of a mangosteen tells you how many pieces of fruit are on the inside?

image

So there should be six pieces inside this one.

Supposedly, it’s good luck to find an eight-leafed mangosteen!

To easily open one, you interlock your fingers and place the mangosteen inside them, the bottom facing you…

image

You then simply slowly apply pressure on the fruit using the palms of your hands…

image

And it should slowly start to tear open…

image

Revealing the white, fleshy fruit inside…

image

image

From there you just use your fingers to peel off the rest of the skin…

image

Six pieces, as “promised”…

image

Ready to eat and enjoy!
