I couldn’t find these during travel in Central America or Asia, but now they are sold five blocks away (at 320 Market Cafe) from my house in Swarthmore, Pennsylvania. So happy. The USDA’s APHIS allowed Thailand to begin shipping mangosteens in 2007, and they are also grown in Hawaii, Puerto Rico, so I really thought we’d get them sooner. By the way, mangosteen is an anglicized version of the Malay word for this fruit. No relation to mango, though both are, indeed, plants.
