They are deciduous or semi-evergreen trees growing to 25 m tall. The leaves are spirally arranged, pinnate, rarely bipinnate or simple. The fruit is a drupe similar to a small mango (in the related genus Mangifera), 4-10 cm long, ripening yellow or orange.
About 10 species of Spondias bear edible fruits and have been domesticated for fruit production. The fruit has a single seed.
