Garcinia sp. De Bico is a rare Garcinia found in the Amazon rainforest.  The fruit is easily identified by elongated rostrate connection with the peduncle which looks like a beak (hence, "de bico" in Portuguese).  The fruit measures 5-6cm diameter, 6-8cm in length, and contains a substantial portion of citrusy sweet pulp.  It is unknown if it is dioecious, but it likely is like most Garcinias.  It is also unknown if it is apomictic.  The orange-yellow rind is quite thick allowing for a substantial hold period after picking.  The calyx leaves remnants of the sepal.  The pulp forms 3-6 wedge shaped sections some of which will contain a seed, as common in other Garcinias.
