Is this a pale Garcinia forbesii?
« on: April 14, 2019, 12:58:42 PM »
Hi,
found those fruit in a Kalimantan fruit forest/jungle. Could be a pale/ underripe Garcinia forbesii or some other species. Any ideas?

In my experience forbesii has a distinct taste of apple that stands out from other garcinias I know.
Nice trip and videos, thanks for sharing!

Thank you, yes, the taste was somehow like G. forbesii but not as strong. Getting confused after trying dozens of wild Garcinia sp.
