Lemon Drop Mangosteen (Garcinia Intermedia) now starting to put out further top growth. Should produce gorgeous rare tropical fruit in 1-2 years. #tropicalfruit #raretropicalfruit #gardens #gardening #mangosteen

@latebloomer if you scroll the pics you'll see what the fruit looks like...it's a close cousin of mangosteen but will fruit much earlier and grows smaller, just extremely rare, I think I'm the only person in Europe growing and selling the plants!! 😃😃

@Naomi126 I find after a day looking in people's mouth nothing more calming than my dogs and plants.....they don't talk/moan.....I also think I'm slightly crazy...so growing rare plants is my love! 😀😀👍

My Lemon Drop Mangosteen seedlings have germinated. Seeds from jungles in Ecuador. Will give lovely fruit in around 2 years. Cousin of the famous purple mangosteen.
