MANGOSTEEN

 

Description

The mangosteen description is a fun one! The mangosteen (Garcinia mangostana) is a tropical tree that originates from Indonesia. The tree itself grows from 20-80 feet tall. The tree’s bark is very dark brown, almost black looking.

The tree grows slowly and takes about two years to read 12” in height. It has short, leather like evergreen leaves. When the tree blooms, its flowers are 12” wide and grow in clusters of 3-6 on the tips of the branches. The tree is ultra tropical, so it cannot tolerate temperatures below 40F or above 100F.
