Canarium album[2] is a tree species in the genus Canarium and the family Burseraceae, found in Indo-China; the Catalogue of Life does not record any sub-species.[2]

Canarium album produces a fruit - sometimes called an "olive" or "white olive",[3] but no relation to Olea; it is consumed in Vietnam (Vietnamese: trám trắng, fruit quả trám), Thailand (where it is known as nam liap (Thai: หนำเลี้ยบ), samo chin (Thai: สมอจีน) or kana (Thai: กาน้า)) and in China (Simplified Chinese: 橄榄; Traditional Chinese: 橄欖; Pinyin" gǎn lǎn ).[4]
