Spanish term or phrase: cañafístula
I'm doing an MT editing job and cannot find the translation of this term in English.

Here's the MT source and translation:

Source: reporte del estado de situación de las plantaciones de cañafistula.
Translation: report on the status of cane plantations.

Here's the Spanish definition:
minoso de unos 10 m de altura, con flores amarillas en racimos colgantes, cuyo fruto tiene una pulpa negruzca y dulce que se emplea en medicina.
Fruto de este árbol.

The MT translation may be right, but I just wanted to make sure.
