Please validate.
The id's seems to be ok for me. But for conformation, at least for the first picture, we need more information, mainly on flowers and color of the exudate from the bark.
The Id of the second picture is seems to be correct! My guess is based on the size and shape of leaves. Further, the species name G. cambogia is now a synonym of Garcinia gummi-gutta (L.) Roxb. of Clusiaceae family.

Garcinia gummi-gutta (L.) Roxb.(= Garcinia cambogia (Gaertn.) Desr.), growing wild from Agumbe Ghat, one of the popular fruit used in nutraceutical industry for the production of Hydroxycitric acid.
common in Kerala, and Coorg area of Karnataka
i had never seen fresh fruits like you are showing here
only dry kokum at indian grocery stores
thank you
For almost a decade this was a fastest growing craze among sellers and buyers for quick weight loss..
may still be.. but those frantic markedly hyped ads are all but gone..  but i am sure just like the ponzi schemes it made the sellers of cambogia extracts, ad writers and ad distributors some real cash..


Seen this Tree (Almost 10 to 12 m tall) at "Mundgetaggal", North Karnataka.
Bot. name: Garcinia gummi-gutta
Family: Clusiaceae
Nice images of female flowers.
Very beautiful flowers, never seen.. thanks

A few photographs of Garcinia gummi-gutta
Photographed from a garden in Calicut during March 2013. Though is a pretty big tree it seems that it has never fruited. Are the flowers in the photograph female flowers? 
Popularly known as Malabar Tamarind or 'Kudampuli' (കുടമ്പുളി) in Malayalam.
Very nice set of pictures

Please identify this shrub from Kannur District of Kerala. Leaves very much acidic... probably a species of Garcinia.. know that it is difficult with only vegetative form. But experts of our group can do it I hope....
Looks like Garcinia gummi-gutta
