Garcinia atroviridis, known as asam gelugur, asam gelugo, or asam keping is a large rainforest tree native to Peninsular Malaysia and Sumatra . It is a popular herbal treatment in southeast Asia, especially Thailand, and is also occasionally cultivated in gardens, and semi-cultivated in the surrounding forest, for its edible fruit. The large fruits can be eaten raw or cooked. It has a very acid pulp. It makes excellent jellies and compotes and can also be dried then added to soups. The fruits are globose and about 7-10 cm in diameter. A mature fruit can weigh up to 2 kg. The bright orange-yellow fruit skin is thin and smooth. The fruit contains several seeds 1.5 cm long, which are flattened and surrounded by bright orange pulp.
