Harpephyllum caffrum or Wild plum is a lovely, medium to large semi-deciduous tree with a handsome, dense, spreading crown. This attractive member of the mango family has shiny, dark green, compound leaves that are characteristically grouped at the tips of the branches. The male and female plants are separate. The flowers are small and insignificant but the 20-30mm long red fruits are edible, although they are somewhat sour. The flowers and fruits attract a variety of butterflies, birds and mammals to the garden. Although the Wild plum grows fairly slowly it is a popular shade tree in gardens, parks and for street planting in towns and cities.
