These exotic fruits look wonderfully strange, and they taste of adventure.

Mangosteen

15 of 15

Here’s one fruit you don’t want to bite into: the purple outside is hard and feels like a wooden shell. You crack it open by pulling off one end and breaking the shell to reveal pearlescent white pods inside. Some of the pods may have seeds in the middle, and the texture of those white segments is soft, with a translucent jelly toward the center of the fruit. Your reward is a complex sweet and tangy treat.
