Garcinia celebica[2] is an accepted name of a tree species in the family Clusiaceae.[3][4] The Catalogue of Life lists no subspecies.[3]

Description and vernacular names[edit]

A number of descriptions of this (evidently variable) plant, notably in Indo-China by Pierre and others, relate to records under synonyms such as Garcinia benthamii and G. ferrea; the latter has been called rỏi mật (sometimes gỏi) in Vietnamese.[5] The species name indicates an original description in the Celebes (Sulawesi) and it is found throughout Malesia, with local names (especially Borneo) including: Kalawet, Kandis, Kandis pulan, Manggis, Manggis hutan, Perda-perda and Sungkep.[6]

Based on the above, the species is a tropical forest main canopy tree some 25–30 m high in Vietnam,[5] or up to 36 m tall and 0.93 m dbh in Indonesia; trunks and stems can exude white to yellow latex. The leaves are approximately 130 x 60 mm. Flowers are yellowish, approximately 12 mm. Fruits are ovoid up to 45 mm: with 5-10 segments.[5]
