Apodytes dimidiata, the white pear, is a tree (SA Tree List No. 422) of the higher rainfall coastal and tropical parts of southern Africa and central Africa. The distribution area ranges from the south coast of the Western Cape, along the Eastern Cape and KwaZulu-Natal coastal parts to the northern inland regions of South Africa, Zimbabwe, Mozambique and tropical central Africa.
Often growing to 5 m only, this tree may surprise with its size in old tropical and other forests by achieving heights of around 20 m (Van Wyk and Van Wyk, 1997; Coates Palgrave, 2002; Noad and Birnie, 1989).
