History of Garcinia Combogia:
The fruit was an article of commerce in the dry state. It was used as a substitute for 'Kokam' and was in use in the Bombay army as an antiscorbutic in 1799 along with 'Kokam'. It was valued for its dried rind, which was used in Travancore-Cochin and Malabar as a condiment for flavouring curries in place of tamarind or lime. In Ceylon, the fruits were picked under-ripe, the thick pericarp cut into sections, dried in the sun and preserved for future use. The dried material was used along with salt in the curing of fish.
It is commonly found in the evergreen and shola forests of Western Ghats in India up to 6,000 ft. high.
