Primadusia

Originally a rare cousin to the quince, which is mainly used as an extremely toxic food when not perfectly cooked, but also very flavored and disposing extremely efficiency medicine aptitudes when manufactured.  

Biologics

  The primadusia is one of the two unique member of the genus Cydonia in the family Rosaceae (which also contains apples and pears, among other fruits). It is a deciduous tree that bears a pome fruit, similar in appearance to a pear, and bright pale purple with when mature.   The tree grows 3.5 to 6m high (shorter than its cousin) and 4 to 6 m wide. The fruit is 14 to 18 cm long and 8 to 9 cm across. The immature fruit is green with dense grey-white fine hair, most of which rubs off before maturity in late autumn-like periods when the fruit changes color to bright pale purple with hard, strongly perfumed flesh. The leaves are alternately arranged, simple, 4 to 7 cm long, with an entire margin and densely pubescent with fine white hairs. The flowers, produced during the month after the leaves, are made of a bright red, ~7.5 cm across, with five petals.   The seeds contain nitriles, which are common in seeds of the rose family. In the stomach, enzymes or stomach acid or both cause some of the nitriles to be hydrolyzed and produce hydrogen cyanide, which is a volatile and extremely toxic gas. The seeds are only likely to be toxic if a large quantity is eaten but the edible part of the fruit also contains some sorts of nerves, who are extremely mortal.  

Cultivation

  Like its cousin the quince, the primadusia is an hardy, drought-tolerant shrub which adapts to many soils of low to medium acidity. It tolerates both shade and sun, but sunlight is required in order to produce larger flowers and ensure fruit ripening. It is a very tough plant that does not require much maintenance, and tolerates years without pruning or major insect and disease problems.The tree is self-pollinated, but it produces better yields when cross-pollinated.   This way, people on hot territories rich in quinces or already planted primadusia often take far zones, being not deranged to take a look daily to these plants, and  

Uses

  Throughout history the cooked fruit has been used as food, but the tree is also grown for its attractive powerful red blossoms and other ornamental qualities. It also has been used a lot in foods people can't describe what's inside to add a mortal effect, like soups.  

Food

  Primadusias are appreciated for their intense aroma and flavor. However, most are too hard on harvest and tart to be eaten raw; even ripe fruits should be subjected to bletting by frost or decay to be suitable for consumption. However, they may be cooked or roasted and used for jams, marmalade, jellies, or pudding.   Primadusia cheese and puddings are firm, sticky, and sweet reddish hard pastes made of the primadusia fruit, originating from the Bayoyugaruf planet, which is an exceptionally prolific planet for its growth. It is known as well to be cooked in the rillette, where it is used in a variety of recipes, eaten in sandwiches and with cheese, or accompanying fresh curds.    

Medicine

  The primadusia is more or less unique in his own, being when manufactured one of the most efficient medicine in the universe. It's totally safe under the manufactured form, but serious skin rashes may rarely occur under high doses,and can also result in liver failure. Primade is classified as a mild analgesic. It does not have significant anti-inflammatory activity and how it works is not clear.   It's used for the relief of mild to moderate pain most often. The use of the intravenous form of Primade for short term pain in people in the emergency department is supported by limited evidence, but also used for reducing fever in people of all ages. We can simply compare it to an high quality paracetamol, which is heavily used and bought by the armies of all nations in multiple forms, since the additional painkiller and antibacterial effects are extremely efficiency.   It also is the source of one of the most dangerous disease know nowadays, behind the Prias and Aferchites infections/corruptions : The Priminite  

Priases

More detailled article : Cryze
  The Priases are extremely huge users of the Primadusia, being one of the major component of the Cryze to the scale of 45%. Because of this massive use, they installed Primadusia trees on a huge amount of planets and territories, and took control (legally, through money or deals) of Pure Kharises and CSUN fields just to grow that.

First of all, great work on giving the details, its really detailed and amazing. Your atricle is really great and feels very sci-fi

2 Jul, 2018 17:17

Thanks ! I really love to work on these damn details we all have/know for alcoholic parties ! Also, "what" for you define that sci-fi sensation ? I would be very interested in that

2 Jul, 2018 17:37

Things well explained in real world technical terms

2 Jul, 2018 18:01

Then I will stay in that way ! Thanks a new time !

2 Jul, 2018 17:04

I love your use of tooltips - your formatting is gorgeous. You've clearly put a lot of thought into the details, as this reads pretty similarly to a real-world article on an actual plant. Well done! I'm curious, though. How was a simple fruit tree able to originate such a deadly disease?

2 Jul, 2018 17:15

Eh eh thank you ! If you want a comparison on "How was a simple fruit tree able to originate such a deadly disease?", I can tell you that there was 2 main inspirations : The Quine (Fruit) and the Fugu (Fish). About more precisely, how that disease can get acquired, why is it so dangerous : Everything will be in the Priminite article, which will be developed additionally for the Summer Camp Challenge, as the mortal disease.

2 Jul, 2018 17:18

Aah, I know about the fugu fish already, so I can see where you're going there. I look forward to reading the mortal disease article in the future, then!

2 Jul, 2018 17:34

Eh eh thank for this and future review :p

2 Jul, 2018 17:47

Very nicely done Rwby. You have very strong naming on your world in general and it shows in this article

2 Jul, 2018 17:53

Thank you ! I like to not forget to define almost everything that can be defined. In the future.. There will badly be things impossible to define, since they are out of my comprehension, but into the one some characters (Example : A 4rd physical dimension.)

2 Jul, 2018 18:42

it's good ! continue like this !

2 Jul, 2018 19:16

Thanks for your time of read !

2 Jul, 2018 18:56

I like the details in this article and you made good use of the sidebar to explain the prices for it. You have a good layout as well !

2 Jul, 2018 19:15

Thank you ! For products, I try to fix more or less prices to prevent the moment I will write up the divinely hard, complex, completely importants Money & Table of Prices articles uhuh.

I really loved the biologic and its uses as food and medicine, its well detailed and written, giving me the feeling that this plant could truly exist in the world. Nice work.

3 Jul, 2018 09:52

Thanks for the comment, that's my aim to have the more complete and realistically possible creations ! :p

5 Jul, 2018 09:51

Great. You've made me mildly terrified of a fruit. Although it's sort of like tapioca I suppose.

5 Jul, 2018 10:09

Wow ! Being terrified by a fruit gives me a good opinion of what I've written, thanks ! :p
