Ive never seen this fruit before. so i bought it and took it home, only with the intention to paint it!
after doing some research online ( i typed in Thailand fruit) i found out that its a mangosteen, and its recently started coming into Canada after a ban on its sale to north America was lifted. neato! this painting took about half an hour- i couldn't wait to crack it open and eat it, just out of curiosity. now that i have, i can say that a mangosteen is what happens when a banana and a clementine get together. it tastes a bit like kiwi, if anything. i, erm, wont be buying mangosteens anymore...
