What is Garcinia xanthochymus

Garcinia xanthochymus is an evergreen tree in the family Clusiaceae, native to India and Himalayan West. It is a member of the mangosteen . It is in the same group as the mangosteen and Garcinia subelliptica. The leaves are cortical, glossy, and elongated, oval. The inflorescence grows in spring and produces white five-petaled flowers. It bears fruit in late summer to autumn. It is also called 'False mangosteen' in English because the fruit resembles a mangosteen, and 'egg tree' because the shape of the fruit resembles that of an egg. The fruit has a strong sour taste, so it is eaten as a jam or sorbet rather than eating it raw.The name of the flower is derived from the Latin word for the yellow yarn-like substance in the fruit: "yellow, milky".
