Coccoloba uvifera
Kino Ki"no, n. The dark red dried juice of certain plants, used variously in tanning, in dyeing, and as an astringent in medicine. [1913 Webster]

Other sources are the African {Pterocarpus erinaceus}, the tropical American sea grape ({Coccoloba uvifera}), and several Australian Eucalypti.
