The dehiscent 2-winged fruit has a subcircular outline with a cordate base and apex and an elongated protruding apical extension.
The dehiscent 2-winged fruit is nearly elliptical, with retuse apical margin.
The fruits are 5- (to 2-) winged and may be indehiscent, or dehiscent into mericarps (Bayer and Kubitzki, 2003).
The fruit is a 5-winged inflated loculicidally dehiscent capsule, obcordate in outline, formed from a 5-carpellate ovary.
Fruit mostly a pair of ventrally dehiscent follicles (often only one due to abortion) (rarely a capsule), with small seeds with a micropylar coma, rarely with a chalazal coma or ecomose (fruits in Rauvolfioideae drupes, berries, follicles, or capsules; seeds usually ecomose, naked, winged, or arillate).
Anthers free from style head; corolla-lobe aestivation in bud typically sinistrorse (overlapping to the left), rarely dextrorse; fruit dehiscent or indehiscent, syncarpous or apocarpous, a berry, drupe, follicle, or capsule; seeds naked, with wings, or arils, but almost never with coma Rauvolfioideae at one end 2.
Fruit dehiscent or indehiscent; pericarp fleshy or dry; endocarp sometimes lignified, forming a stone around the seed(s); seeds generally naked or winged, testa glabrous or hairy, smooth, or pitted, ridged or rugulose, without coma (except in Haplophyton), sometimes with pronounced hilar furrow; endosperm smooth, sometimes ridged or ruminate.
Anthers usually sagittate at base and with lignified guide rails; fruit fleshy, either a pair of dehiscent follicles with arillate seeds or an indehiscent beery Tabernaemontaneae 1.
