Mangosteen is a small and very-slow growing evergreen tree found in the tropical countries throughout Asia, such as Thailand, India, China, Indonesia, Cambodia, Singapore, Malaysia, Burma, Vietnam and the Philippines. The tree is also found in Hawaii and tropical Northern Australia. The tree grows to a height of 20 to 82 feet and bears leaves measuring 10 inches in length and 1½ to 2 inches in width. The superfruit mangosteen is made up of three parts, namely, the mangosteen pericarp, the pulp and the seeds.
