Purple Pindaúva, "from the Tupi - 'Pinda' rod or slat and 'Yba' fruit that is '
fruit tree that gives slats'". It also receives the names: Broad leaf Pindaiba
and Black Pindaúva. Origin: species found in the same habitat as Duguetia lanceolata, but with very
low frequency. The abbreviation aff. means: that the plant is very similar, but
with different characteristics, and may be a new species or variety to be
classified. Seedlings: Seeds are dormant if they are dry, retaining germination power for
more than 1 year. I recommend that the seeds be sown in planters containing a
substrate rich in organic matter, leaving it in a greenhouse where it maintains
humidity and heat. In this way the seeds germinate in 40 to 90 days. When the
seedlings have 2 to 4 leaves they should be transplanted into individual bags
containing a substrate made of 50% organic matter and 50% red soil. Form the
seedlings in the shade; so they will reach 30 cm in about 12 to 15 months.
Seedlings in the field grow 30 cm per year for the first 2 years after planting,
then grow faster. Planting: It can be planted in full sun or in mixed reforestations to use the
wood or fruits that feed different birds. In the orchard, it is planted in a
spacing of 6 x 6 m, in holes of 50 cm in three dimensions; adding to the 30 cm
of the surface 6 kg of well-tanned organic matter, 1 kg of ash, 300 g of
limestone, mix everything and leave to cure for 2 months. Planting should be done
from October. Irrigate with 15 l of water per week for the first 3 months if it
does not rain. It is advisable to cover the surface of the soil with dry grass or
sawdust to maintain moisture. Uses: Fruiting from March to May. The fruits of this species have better quality
and also have great durability after being harvested, remaining in excellent
condition for up to 10 days in a shady and cool environment. Unlike the type
species, this one does not release shoots at the base of the trunk. Due to its
smaller size, this new variety or species is very promising to generate income
for family farming and fruit growing in general.
