Parinari is a genus of plant in the family Chrysobalanaceae.[2]

Species of genus Parinari are found in Subsaharan Africa from Senegal to Sudan and Kenya and south to Namibia and Natal; in Eastern Madagascar; from Indochina through Indonesia, New Guinea, northern Queensland, and the southwest Pacific; and in Central and South America from Costa Rica to Trinidad and southern Brazil.[1][2] The oldest fossils of Parinari fruits are from the early Miocene of Ethiopia, Panama, and Colombia.[2]

The genus is closely related to Neocarya.[3]

Parinari can be distinguished from other genera in Chrysobalanaceae by the following characteristics:[4]

  • zygomorphic floral symmetry
  • 6-10 unilaterally-attached stamens per flower
  • ovary at side or mouth of receptacle-tube
  • leaf lower surface lanate and with hair-filled stomatal cavities and parallel secondaries closely spaced
  • pair of glands on leaf petiole
  • large, woody fruits


As of May 2014 The Plant List recognises 42 accepted species (including infraspecific names):[5]
