Palālarajju (पलालरज्जु) refers to a “straw rope” (used for tying together the stems of plants), as prescribed by certain bio-organical recipes for plant mutagenesis, according to the Vṛkṣāyurveda by Sūrapāla (1000 CE): an encyclopedic work dealing with the study of trees and the principles of ancient Indian agriculture.—Accordingly, “If thick stems of Cucumis melo var. utilissiumus and Benincasa hispida plants are smeared with honey and melted butter then tied together with straw rope (palālarajju) [baddhā palālarajjvā ca] and then covered with cow dung they become one. Later, if the stem is cut keeping the order of the root and tip, Cucumis melo var. utilissiumus, bears fruits of Benincasa hispida size”.
