Kokum is a tropical evergreen tree, related to the mangosteens. The marble-sized fruit grows green and firm, but later turns soft and deep red.

It is used as a slightly bitter spice in recipes from Maharashtra and as a souring agent and substitute for tamarind in curries and other dishes from Coorg. It is also used in Konkani cuisine, in Gujarat, and some cuisines of South India.

It has a refreshing sour taste.
