This fruit can be easily found in my village. A lot of mangosteen’s tree spread around the village. Today is the season of this fruit. So, you will find this fruit over flooding the table of seller in the market or in the side of the street.
Its taste is unique. The mix between sweet and sour make a delicious taste. Its color is black and maroon. I think all of you have tasted this fruit. Price per kilogram is cheap. Per kilogram is Rp. 5.000,-. Don’t worry with the price…
Beside of its taste, this fruit also reveal other uniqueness. Yes, it is located in the bottom part of this fruit. You can see the black mark, its shape is round. The round shape contains five till six smaller shapes, like footprint of the cat. This represents how many seeds ( Seed that contains flesh of the fruit. Lets we call this seed) in the inner side of this fruit.
By counting the number of small shape (can be seen in the picture with a yellow circle) on the bottom of mangosteen, you will know the number of its seed. If you find the number of the small shape is six, and then if you open the fruit, you will find the same number of seeds.
