    I've been on a mangosteen kick myself. I recently did an amuse bouche tasting with a mangosteen and pomegranate gazpacho finished with a mint marscapone. In 2007 they lifted the ban on them in the U.S. so they are a little easier to find now. I made a salad dressing with them at the restaurant a while back that I dubbed "The Bride of Mangosteen" which was pretty tasty.
    pomelos are great but as swords said can be a little labor intensive. I find scoring and segmenting the easiest way to get at these beasts.

    blood oranges, Figs, Goji berries, dragon fruit, passion fruit, guava, and mangoes....those are my favorites in no particular order.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    i have nagoons crossed with a similar swedish raspberry out in the yard......seems our summers get hot to quick and they shut down before flowering......hoping on a cool summer one of these years so i can try them......

    That's too bad. From what I've read they are also referred to as the arctic raspberry, so they might not be fond of warmness of any kind. I know up on the mountain where they live it probably doesn't get over 70 for more than 20 or so days all year.

    Also, I've heard that they are much more common the further north you go. They're pretty rare even where I live!
