Marilha's garden, continued
Back to the garden. I think this is fake mangosteen (Garcinia cochinchinenensis). One of my neighbors at Bosque Santa Lucia has a fruit-bearing tree of this type. The fruit is very acid, but makes great juice. I planted one of these trees at the Bosque, but it's SLOW in growing. Everyone tells me they've had the same experience. That's the reason I'm surprised how beautiful this one is. Marilha definitely has a "green thumb".
