Noni Fruit

Morinda citrifolia

Noni fruit

Medicinally this odd looking fruit is said to cure everything from stone-fish wounds to digestive upsets to far more serious disease. A concoction from the bark, leaves, roots and fruit can be drunk. When ripe or overripe the skin of the fruit becomes almost translucent and the flesh turns soft to develop an unpleasant odour. The odour has led to nickname of the 'starvation fruit' due to the fact that you would have to be starving to eat it as a fresh fruit. Strictly tropical climate only.

Freeze Juicing: Put ripe (firm, part yellow, part green) Noni fruits in plastic bag, in freezer. Next morning, unthaw. When soft, place in blender; add 1+ cup of water per litre. Blend to puree like apple sauce; store in fridge. No smell, taste is ok.

In Thai cooking - use the leave as the base for steamed fish curry (Red curry+coconut cream wrapped with banana leave), yummy.

Fresh noni leaves applied topically are good for joint inflammation but dried are not so good. Cover with boiling water for a few minutes to warm first.

I have not grown the fruit (yet) but I have been told from people who have that noni has an affinity with citrus. Drink the noni juice with lemon or orange with a bit of honey. Very healing - similar to aloe vera but more powerful.

Once you get your head around the smell (blue vein cheese in tom cat's pee) the flavour is really not too bad at all, though it's definitely an acquired taste. The tree does not do too well away from the tropics.
