Name this Plant: Mangosteen

Congratulations to William Couch, formerly of the Orlando Sentinel (like myself), for correctly naming this plant the mangosteen.

Name this Plant: Two

The mangosteen, according to Wikipedia, can be described as sweet and tangy, citrusy with peach flavor and texture. That isn't what I have experienced. It is like a tiny orange inside the thick rind (segmented) but tastes like a raspberry. They are pretty awesome. The picture from Wikipedia below shows the inside.
