Mangosteen is divided into pulp like oranges. The darker the skin, the better the scent, the better. The skin of mangosteen has a lot of tannin in it, so it is used as a dye to dye the color.
Mangosteen is grown by making seeds without artificially modifying them. It is difficult to raise, so it only grows in limited countries such as Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Sri Lanka, and Taiwan.
