A waft of Noni’s cheesy aroma may not inspire perfume, but the fruit’s pungent odor is redeemed by its unignorable benefits. High in potassium, proxeronine, and many other health properties, the astringent fruit has hooked the hearts of many gardeners. 

Native from Southeast Asia to Northern Australia, the Noni thrived on new lava flows, rooting where few plants dared. It gained immense popularity amongst Polynesian sailors for its low maintenance and impressive size. Natives ate its glossy leaves, burned its wood, and survived off the fruit when nothing else was available. 

The ornamental, highly functional evergreen shrub enjoys taking up space, so ensure you plant Nonis where there’s room for expansive, luscious canopies. Once it’s established, the drought-tolerant noni is capable of withstanding dry spells of 3-6 months with minimal watering.

A relative to the coffee family, Rubiaceae, Noni shares a bitter flavor profile. Noni’s lumpy yellow-to-green glossy exterior houses off-white, bitter flesh, eaten more for its valuable medicinal properties than its flavor. You can distract the bitterness by cooking it down into sauces or curries, or blending it with other fruits and flavors to get the perks without the odorous undertones.

    Two noni fruit plants

    Noni plants are very valuable medicinal plants. I used the ripped cheese fruits to pickle in honey flavor liquor. I had been drinking the liquor I made from the noni fruit for three years now. It helps lower my high blood pressure. Boost my energy, work great for exercise and weight lifting. Sleep very well. It did helped fixed my back pain and arthritis. I even eat the leaves for vegetable as salad roll with roast pork or roast duck. Best of all strong immune system and digestive system. Don't believe what I shared. Experience it for yourself. I learned it the right way how to pickled noni fruit on YouTube or Google.
