The Harpephyllum caffrum is an attractive, semi-deciduous, medium to large tree with a dense, spreading crown. This member of the mango family has dark green compound leaves that are grouped towards the tips of the branches. Male and female plants are separate. The flowers are small and insignificant while the red berry-like fruit is edible although rather acid. This hardy tree is ideal for coastal gardens as it tolerates the scorching effect of salt laden winds and can withstand drought once it is established. The pale reddish brown wood makes an excellent general purpose timber while the bark is used for traditional medicine.
