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.
