Dear Friend,
                  During my stay at Tezpur I came to know about different species of Garcinia.Most common of them all is Garcinia xanthochymus.In Assam it is known as Tepol-tenga.It is known as Dempel in Bangla.It is found in E.Himalayas in Sikkim and northern W.Bengal upto an altitude of 5000ft.And fairly common in the evergreen forests of Assam.The raw fruit,temptingly beautiful,is very acid,especially in the fleshy rind.I saw only one tree of this species at Cooch Behar.Attaching two images of the same.
