Harvest fruits when ripe

Being a tropical species, drying out is a common cause of death, especially for younger plants. During wintertime, you can hold back on watering, but as the temperature increases, ensure that you're keeping your Native Mangosteen well watered. When dry, it will wilt, which is a good indication of when to water.

Although drought-tolerant once established, Native Mangosteen will need additional watering in the summer.

For best results, plant in humus-rich, moist, well-drained soil, and place your plant in full sun. You can also grow in part shade for reasonable results. This dense, glossy tree typically grows up to 6m tall and 3m wide. It's the perfect fruit tree for hedging or screening.

Only able to handle light frost, Native Mangosteen is not very frost tolerant, so keeping your plant well protected is super important. If you live in a cooler climate like Melbourne, we recommend to protect it during winter.

This lovely species does well in full sun but it can thrive in part sun but with lower fruiting amounts.

Being a plant that generates large volumes of fruit, it's important to ensure continued fruiting that you feed regularly. Native Mangosteen like lots of iron and magnesium.

We recommend feeding your plant every 2 to 3 months from spring to autumn with a dose of cow manure or an organic fertiliser if you don’t have great soil. Fertilise with a high-quality, plant food during winter and summer will result in a plant with deep green foilage and lots of fruit.

You can enjoy them raw on their own or in salads, tarts, cakes and other desserts!
