Pygeum is an evergreen tree in the rose family growing up to 150 feet (50 m) tall, found across Africa at elevations of 3,000 feet (1,000 m) or higher. Sometimes referred to as the African Cherry because of its close relationship to the cherry tree, and like the cherry it's a member of the rose family .The dull gray-brown bark of this towering evergreen is the part used for traditional medicinal purposes by indigenous peoples who pulverized the bark, and used it as a tea. Pygeum has become an endangered species in parts of Africa because of the high demand.
