May 8, 2014

Gamboge

The gamboge fruit, (garcinia xanthochymus), is also known as a false mangosteen.  It is from the Malaysian peninsula.  It is approximately 6 to 7 centimeters in diameter.  When ripe, it is bright yellow in color.  The pulp surrounds two seeds and is juicy and acidic.

         Gamboge is commonly used for jam making.  It can also be a substitute for tamarind.  It is also used in curries.

         The gamboge tree is a medium sized tree with large leaves.  The sap from the tree is commonly used for a resin.  Gamboge is in season from March to May.
