Plant Anatomy

Garcinia is a plant genus of the family Clusiaceae which is native to Asia, Australia, tropical and southern Africa, and Polynesia. The fruits are a food source for several animals. These are evergreen trees and shrubs. The fruit of the plant is a berry with fleshy endocarp.

The Fruit

With thin skin and deep vertical lobes, the fruit of Garcinia and related species range from about the size of an orange to that of a grapefruit; Garcinia looks more like a small yellowish, greenish or sometimes reddish pumpkin.

The color can vary considerably. When the rinds are dried and cured in preparation for storage and extraction, they are dark brown or black in color.

Along the west coast of South India, Garcinia is popularly termed "Malabar tamarind," and shares culinary uses with the tamarind (Tamarindus indica).
