Description:
This name is used to refer to at least two species of the Bombacaceae family: Ceiba aesculifolia and Ceiba pentandra. Both trees have a large crown and reach a height of 12 meters, and are currently scarce in the La Ventosa area. When young, this tree presents cone-shaped spines along the trunk. It produces brown flowers and green fruit. When the fruit is not yet ripe, it is called trompi'pi or xtrompi'pi, and when it ripens it is called po'mbo or ta po'mbo (or xtrompo'po in Juchitán). The mature fruit is used by children as a toy. The fruit releases a type of "cotton" as a means of transporting its seeds. This "cotton" is sometimes used to make pillows. The tree is not particularly popular, because it tends to make a mess when releasing its seeds. In addition, during the colonial period, the devil was said to live in the tree.
