Is this a Garcinia spp. Or Syzygium?
« on: April 04, 2016, 01:24:49 AM »
I saw a plant in the front yard of a friend's home. They didn't plant it and don't know what it is.
My first impression was that is a Garcinia; but, the leaves are too thin for a Garcinia and the characteristic yellow latex was absent. My friend's guess was that is a Syzygium.

The pic is not very clear as to see the tip clearly, Garcinias as you may know new growth comes at the tip coming out from the middle, but as you said your friend didn't plant it it could be something else, I guess over there in Kerala you have a great diversity of plants..
