Product Details

Garcinia indica is an evergreen tree native to India. Its sour fruits are commonly used in culinary applications such as curries and dal dishes. A unique alternative to tamarind, garcinia fruits can also be reconstituted and added to smoothies, syrups, and sorbets.

Garcinia fruits are large with a fleshy, dark purple exterior and seedy interior. A member of the mangosteen family, it has been used as a food crop and in industrial applications for centuries. Garcinia fruits have also been employed in Ayurvedic practices for their healthful qualities.

The fruit has five to eight large seeds which have a high oil content. The outer, fleshy part of the fruit is sour and has a distinct flavor. It is often employed as an alternative to tamarind in curries and dal dishes. In western India, the fresh fruit is made into a refreshing beverage. They can be simmered to make syrups or incorporated into smoothies, beverages, and culinary dishes for a unique, sour flavor.
