Garcinia spicata
(Clusiaceae) 

 

Garcinia spicata is a large, dense tree with beautiful glossy foliage and bright orange fruits.  It is relatively slow growing, and makes a nice ornamental.  The fruits have an unpleasant smell, and are probably not edible.  It may have medicinal or other uses, but there is very little information available on this species.
