it’s Food Friday here on YQtravelling. Instead of meals, I’m sharing a how-to video with you.

I had the chance to eat several mangosteens while I was in Johor. I thought it would be interesting to show you how to peel a mangosteen.

Guide to peeling a mangosteen

The fruitseller told me to pick the fruits that had a softer exterior. A mangosteen’s flesh is covered by an armor of fiber which is coated by a dark purple skin.

Take a mangosteen, press on the fruit so the skin breaks.

Then, carefully break off the shell so your fruit doesn’t fall out.

Enjoy the while flesh and be careful of its seed.
