The reddish purple one is a mangosteen, I recognized the stem because I used to pick them as a kid.

Maybe the nut is a calophyllum species. It appears that the platter is natural medicine of sorts (no one that I have ever heard of ate noni because they liked the taste), so that would fit in.

Lol my wife eats noni on a toast with avocado and salt, says it tastes like stinky cheeses she used to love before going vegan 🥴
Her favorite tree in the garden, it's very ornamental looking.
