Watercolour on paper, no date (late 18th, early 19th century). Hand painted copy of an illustration commissioned by William Roxburgh. In his Flora Indica, Roxburgh describes this species as a native of the mountains adjoining Sylhet, where it grows to attain a great size. It flowers in October, and the fruit ripens in February and March. Roxburgh also notes that the natives eat the fruit of this species, ...though by no means so palatable as even a bad domestic mango... and that they dry it too, for medicinal purposes
