Schinus molle, in its native habitat, Peru, is used variously as a mildly alcoholic beverage (fruit), medicine (leaf extracts and sap), and infrequently as a yellow dye and tannin. The species has been introduced into Mexico, the southwestern United States and southern Europe, but in none of these areas is the plant much more than an infrequent ornamental.
