    Hmm, but they can simply indicate no food allowed, I can understand durian not allowed is due to its smell, but mangosteen won't stain clothings if you don't peel it.

    Moreover, there are other fruits that may also stain clothings, like red dragon fruit and cherry. Why specifically mangosteen? I'm very curious about it.

    Because they are afraid of people hiding explosive inside mangosteens.

    I was in a rush when I saw this interesting sign on the glass door, so I didn't check it out further.

    After that, my curiousity keeps on poking me.... that's why I post the question here.
