Divi Divi

Divi Divi, the commercial name for the pods of Ccesalpinia coriaria, a small leguminous tree, native of Northern Brazil, Venezuela, Mexico, and some of the West Indian Islands. The pods are 2 to 3 inches long, $ inch broad, flattened, twisted in drying like the letter S, and of a rich brown colour.

The large percentage of tannin they contain makes them valuable in tanning and in dyeing. They are chiefly exported from Maracaibo.
