Baseball sized, yellow skinned fruit with a flavor supposedly resembling a mangosteen.
Unrelated to the tropical mangosteen, the Yellow Mangosteen is a small tree, usually growing to only 10-20ft. White flowers are borne during some seasons and have a pleasant gardenia-like scent (the Yellow Mangosteen is related to the common gardenia).
Cultural information is scarce, but trees seem to grow well in moist, warm environments, though they are probably hardy to brief frosts.
Fruits are eaten fresh. The tree is also commonly grown for its pretty white flowers, which have a strong, fragrant gardenia scent.
Native to Australia.
