Title: Garcinia ID
Post by: Ertdude on June 12, 2019, 07:30:31 AM
Pretty sure it's either garcinia hombriana, garcinia xanthochymus or giant leaf madruno.

Could be G.hombroniana. Definetly not G.xanthocymus.

That's what I thought it looks like my other seashore mangosteen plants but wasn't 100% sure. Any idea on what the spacing should be for both garcinia hombriana and garcinia xanthochymus from other trees? I have a lot I plan on planting.

2nd photo is achachairu. 1st photo a little harder to tell from that angle. Your original photos above were seashore mangosteen, G. hombroniana.

Both will eventually become large pyramidal trees.

The top tree looks a bit like G. brasiliensis and the bottom pic is G. humilis
