Noni Fruit


Different countries seem to have different names for noni. Nonie is not an uncommon spelling of noni. When people refer to nonie, they are referring to the bumpy green or yellowy white fruit that is very pungent. The smell of nonie (also noni) is repulsive to most people. The taste is not much better.




When the nonie fruit is raw, it is green and hard. When it is ripe, it turns white or yellowy white. The smell starts becoming repulsive as the nonie fruit ripens.


Even with bad smell and terrible taste, the natives hold nonie fruit and nonie plan in high regard because they contain many amazing healing properties and medicinal properties.
