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.
BiologicsThe 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.
CultivationLike 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
UsesThroughout 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.
FoodPrimadusias 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.
MedicineThe 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
More detailled article : CryzeThe 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.
