It took me a while to understand what "midya" means (so slow of me, lol). At first, I thought it was another variety of Mangosteen, like the fruit Rambutan had a "maharlika" variety, or the Durian which has a lot of variety like native, puyat, arancillo, etc. :)

What "midya" means is "half" in Visayan language. But it was spelled wrong and I got confused, it should be spelled "medya" and Mangosteen was misspelled too. Anyways, Mangosteen is just among the fruits which can be seen almost everywhere in Davao City, especially during the Kadayawan Festival where there are bountiful harvest of different kindss of fruits.

Tayo’y Dabawenyo

Sa dakong timog ng Mindanao
May isang lungsod na hinihirang
Ang likas nyang kayamanan 
Ay walang kapantay

Mga bundok, dagat, lupain 
laging sagana sa pagkain
At ang magagandang tanawin 
Kadluan ng aliw

Mutyang Lungsod ng Dabaw
Sa iyong paglalakbay
Sa mithing kaunlaran
Ikaw ay paglilingkuran.

Tayo’y Dabawenyo
Na tapat at totoo
Pangarap ay matamo
Kaluwalhatian mo
