The Peridexion Tree is a species of tree mentioned in medieval bestiaries to thrive in India.
The Peridexion Tree is a special tree because it is believed to have the ability to repel dragons. The tree produces sweet fruit which attracts flocks of doves. A dragon would chase these doves hoping to get a quick bite and follow them to the tree. The dragon however for some reason would not enter the shade of the tree. For however long the dove stays in the shade of the tree, it will be safe. But once it leaves the safety of the tree, the dragon will chase it once again.
