They had mangosteens at the Fancy Food Show!
Mangosteens are one of Lawman's favorite fruits. They used to be only blackmarket and hard to find in the states. Well, Mangosteen lovers rejoice, over the past 6 months they have become legalized and hopefully with their exposure at the Fancy Food Show we'll start seeing more mangosteens in the supermarket.
I got to taste my first mangosteen and it was very pleasant. The texture is somewhat similar to a lychee, but a bit more stringy and delicate. Flavorwise it was fresh, sweet, and juicy. I enjoyed it immensely and I wouldn't mind more.
More Fancy Food finds to come. Check out our pics here.
