Mangosteens spotted in New Jersey.

I picked up a bag of Mangosteens at Hong Kong Supermarket on RT 18 South in East Brunswick yesterday. $8.00/lb. They were quite small and tasted rather green, so I will wait a while to see if they ripen somewhat . The bag indicated that they were Thai and were quarantined. My question is for how long? and did it effect the taste and texture? The ones I've tasted in Hong Kong, and Manila were larger, and sweeter, but I guess that's to be exspected .
