    Maybe try T&T Supermarket in the NE part of town - it's a big Asian market, and regularly carries tropical fruit.

      They have mangosteens at T&T pretty much year round. I believe they are frozen and then thawed, but they are still decent. Expensive though at roughly $2 a piece. But as good as i've had on the North American continent.

        Saw some at Chongo's at the Crossroads Market last Sunday. Also agree with the T&T recommendation.
