Garcinia parvifolia

  • T. K. Lim


This book continues as volume 2 of a multi-compendium on Edible Medicinal and Non-Medicinal Plants. It covers edible fruits and seeds used fresh, cooked or processed into other by-products, or used as vegetables, spices, stimulants, edible oils and beverages. It encompasses species from the following families: Clusiaceae, Combretaceae, Cucurbitaceae, Dilleniaceae, Ebenaceae, Euphorbiaceae, Ericaceae and Fabaceae. However, not all the edible species in these families are included for want of coloured illustrations. The edible species dealt with in this work include to a larger extent lesser-known, wild and underutilized crops and also common and widely grown crops.
