Porongo is a climbing plant in the Lagenaria Siceraria family which is also known as gourd.
The fruit of this plant is varied and can be presented from small and rounded as large and long.
Because it is a very old tree, the Indians already used its fruit as utensils, producing a kind of glass for their drinks.
The traditional chimarrão cuia is still made with porongo.
Many people claim that it is made from gourds and we have to clarify that this is the popular name of porongo.
However, there is another tree which also gives similar fruit and which is used to do so.
This plant is the moringa or Coité tree, belonging to the Crescentia Cujete family, which in some areas is also called gourd.
Therefore, some claim that the cuia is made of porongo or gourd, referring to the moringa tree.
. These processes are:
Cut the fruit in the shape and size possible for the formation of the piece.
Then it is placed in a shaded place to receive the air flow. This process causes the material not to crack and also eliminates the characteristic smell of the fruit.
The next step is to glue it right in the center of it to remove all the soft bagasse inside. In this process, it is already smooth.
Finally, it’s time to run it through a high-speed motor so that it is waxed, which ensures the brightness and beauty of the room.
Before using it for the first time, it is important to leave the cuia full of hot, unboiled water for about 24 hours.
Then it should be washed and dried for at least 72 hours in the shade.
