Garcinia humilis is native to Bolivia and is sometimes called Bolivian mangosteen. This small fruit must be harvested when fully ripe as it does not constitute to ripen once removed from the tree. The yellow to orange rind protects a delicate and delicious white pulp on the inside that surrounds 1-2 seeds. It has a delicious sweet and tangy flavor comparable to mangosteen but with more of a lemonade flavor.
Currently we are only sourcing these from a certified organic farm we manage in Homestead Florida

Fruit arrived quickly and in excellent shape! Very complex flavor - a lot going on when you taste them. Will buy again soon!
The taste, however, is a bit of an acquired one, and can be unpleasant if you hate the smell of some common men’s colognes—this tastes like the smell of those, plus a little bit of sweet and a whole lot of sour lemony-ness.
