Noni fruit – the tree of life and passionfruit. The Noni Fruit is labelled the ‘Tree of Life’ by most Fijians. The ugly knobled fruit it produces has many medicinal properties. When the fruit is ripe it turns from a green to a light yellow shade with a pungent smell. The liquid produced by the fruit has been dubbed an ‘anti-cancer’ source and good for the immune system. The leaves can be chewed and when placed on the skin to draw out poison. The flower, when chewed will reduce a toothache.
