The santol originally found in the wild are sour and not very tasty. However, the santol available from good suppliers are usually a hybrid variety whose fruits are a mixture of sweet and sour. It's often referred to as sweet santol. Although not completely sweet, it is flavourful.

The fruit is made up of several lobs of juicy, white flesh, similar to the mangosteen. But they belong to different families. It contains small seeds which are inedible.  

Santol fruit is high in vitamin C, dietary fibre, and minerals such as potassium and calcium.

Other Uses

The tree's rind and leaves contain saponin, a compound that when combined with water produces a soapy lather. Because of this, it may be used as a natural soap and shampoo.
