Garcinia mangostana

A fruit tree that not widely cultivate in Colombia and therefore somewhat expensive and often not in the supermarkets. The white endocarp is what you eat and it is sweet and delicious. There is a large mangosteen orchid farm in Mariquita where you can buy the fruit wholesale. Photographed in Mariquita.

The fruits while still yellow
