Out of stock
Morinda citrifolia is a tropical species used by many cultures around the pacific where it occurs. In Australia, these small trees (to 3 metres) grow along the coast of northern Queensland and the Northern Territory. The roots yield a yellow dye (Morindin), unripe fruit is eaten in curries, almost each part of the plant is useful. Leaves give a positive test for alkaloids and the rootbark has antiseptic properties. Lately it has been marketed as a tonic. Also known as Noni.
Care and Cultivation Seeds should be planted in a sandy well drained potting mix, preferably on a heat bed (outside the tropics) or in late spring/summer (all other climatic zones). Seeds will germinate in 4-6 weeks. Bring inside over winter if you live outside the tropics.
