Im sure Jim can relate that this particular Garcinia has a generous flesh yield and that places it in a desirable category.

NW Ecuador means its native to the choco rainforest or maybe moist forest on the Andean mountains.if it grows at your place it'll sure do well in my place

I would say this species is one of the best Ecuadorian members of the genus to try. SE Asian lowland tropics has a different climate from the western Amazon especially where a little altitude is involved even if latitudes roughly correspond.
