Description:
This name is used to refer to at least two species of the genus Agonandra, which belongs to the Opiliaceae family. These abundant trees reach a height of 6 meters. The flowers are green with yellow, and the yellow fruit is used to feed iguanas and birds. The wood was once used to make toy tops and cup-and-ball toys, because it is very hard wearing and does not split when nails are driven into it. Some people use the leaves to cure fright. Medicinal properties are also attributed to the leaves to treat inflammation: they are soaked in a substance called "catalán" and used to bathe the body or as an enema.
