Any pictures of the fruit? What's the flavor profile? Similar to mangosteen?

I have eaten a lot of Garcinias of all kinds including good dulcis, lucs, russells macrophylla madrono megaphylla, the main SE brazil species achachas etc and many mangosteen varieties. Mt view is that the queen has a very shaky grip on the throne.
Lucs has a taste almost as good as mangosteen and flesh yield is ok for an American but the texture is less than ideal. I'd still have it in the top 5. Mangosteens especially the better lines like mesta are pretty good with a nice taste and flesh yield can also let mangosteens down generally. Imbes are like vitamin c tablets, gardneriana, brasiliensis and intermedia are too small with too little flesh to be contenders. Megaphylla is on par with achacha in taste and flesh yiels as well as size and is just a bit sweeter but these are not the big guns.
Ok number 1 Russell sweet with size, flesh yield and nice peachy taste putting is ahead. The taste ideally could be a little more intense. 2 Mangosteen and I don't need to describe the queen, 3 Macrophylla and Lucs by proxy as I have never had a really big fat fruit. 4 Now it gets more subjective with more contenders like cherapu, magaphylla, achacha and dulcis. Maybe a good big sweet form dulcis gets this spot but most are not sweet enough but they have good flesh yield.

They say number 1 garcinia.
also my number 1 bucket list  plant to have. :)
