Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Maclura tinctoria, formerly morus tinctoria and commonly known as Old Fustic or Dyer's mulberry is a medium to large tree of the Neotropics, from Mexico to Argentina. It produces a yellow dye called fustic primarily known for coloring khaki fabric for U.S. military apparel during World War I. This dye contains the flavonoid morin. Old fustic is not to be confused with Young Fustic (Rhus cotinus) from southern Europe and Asia, which provides a more fugitive colour.show more
