Sweet and sour flavors go hand-in-hand for Lemon Drop Mangosteen. Garcinia intermedia is a rare fruit tree native to Northwestern regions of South America, through Central America and Mexico.

This rare tropical evergreen fruit tree is a Mangosteen relative with unmatched vigor. It’s fast-growing, adaptable, and full of potential. The Lemon Drop Mangosteen bears sweet fruit that easily ranks among some of our favorite mangosteen varieties.  Like all Garcinias, the Lemon Drop Mangosteen has a really unique tropical flavor that is sweet and tart and pretty impossible to stop eating once you get started.

You can eat Lemon Drop Mangosteen right from the tree, or save the fruits for a rejuvenating snack. If you’re feelin’ jazzy, Lemon Drop Mangosteen juice can invigorate any freshly-poured cocktail, too. Simply peel the small yellow shell to uncover the round bundles of fun inside to welcome a refreshing tart twist in the peak of Mangosteen season. The taste falls somewhere between pineapple and citrus.

    Healthy Little Tree

    Tree arrived in good condition secured properly in it's packaging. It arrived with two nodes of growth, maybe 4" in height. 2 weeks later it is still doing fine. Didn't arrive within 3 days, but I ordered the weekend after Thanksgiving and I live in Hawaii, so I understand why it took a bit longer.

    Healthy and Well Potted

    This was one of three plants on the order, they all where shipped fast and arrived within 3 days. The seedling is very healthy and has new growth. I have been buying from different places rare and exotic fruit and this place is certainly worth buying from. The seedling I got is about 5 inches tall with new growth.
