Exploring the Fruit's Origins
Throughout our site you will find us touting the remarkable benefits and the powerful, naturally occurring chemical components that make up our top-quality Noni Fruit Leather and Noni Lotionproducts made from noni fruit (Morinda Citrifolia). But we think the history of this amazing plant deserves a little attention of its own.
Morinda citrifolia is the scientific name of this attractive tropical plant that first arrived in the South Pacific through the colonization efforts of the ancient peoples of French Polynesia. They relied on the fruit for both nutritional value and for its natural healing properties.
These sea-farers were known to have utilized every part of the Noni plant for human consumption. They took the plants (Morinda Citrifolia) with them from island to island, and it is now eaten in raw and cooked forms by different people groups depending on cultural preferences.
