Garcinia are small tropical evergreen trees or shrubs, with a dense pyramid shaped canopy exhibiting attractive foliage, clusters of creamy white flowers and bears highly prized fruits that are cultivated throughout India, Southeast Asia, Northern Australia, the Amazonian rainforests of South America and the warm humid regions of South Africa. The fruits are best described as round and egg shaped with each variety offering their own unique colour and slight taste variance. The fruit inner contains an aromatic yellowish to creamy white fleshy pulp that is considered as being both, sweet and tart, somewhat similar to that of a passionfruit but with a subtle melting sorbet like finish.
