It kind of looks like Garcinia brasiliensis to me but I only have a handful of Garcinias to compare it to. The same common names are used for many different species unfortunately.

Hello

Just dig up the seed a little bit, if it is the true Bacuri it will be large, almost the size of a chicken egg.

These leaves do not look like true Bacuri leaves, they resemble leaves of some other garcinia.

Another factor is to remember how long it took for germination, Bacuri takes up to 3 years to germinate the seeds.

there are methods to germinate faster, but that's another story!
