Syzygium travancoricum Gamble, Bull. Misc. Inform. Kew 1918: 240 1918.;
PLEASE IDENTIFY THE SYZYGIUM: THIS IS PLANT WITH QUADRANGULAR STEM.
Sterile specimens are difficult to identify. Do you have the flower?
If its from south or central Western Ghats then it could be Syzigium tamilnadense
There are two possibilities:
LEAVES HAVE SMELL LIKE TENDER MANGO
Then it should be Syzygium travancoricum Gamble
We, at present, work on the pollination ecology, seed dispersal and recruitment of 5 species of Syzygiums this species is one among them.
The specimens are of Syzygium travancoricum Gamble (MYRTACEAE), an endemic species of southern Western Ghats.

Cultivated tree near Gudalur Nilgiri dt Tamilnadu, leaves give mango smell when crushed.
Possibly some Syzygium sp.
It seems to Garcinia talboti
It doesn’t look like Garcinia to me
I too think it is a Syzygium sp?
