Noni is an evergreen shrub or small tree that grows throughout the tropical regions of the Pacific Ocean, from Southeast Asia to Australia. Noni has a history of use as a topical preparation for joint pain and skin conditions. Today, noni fruit juice has folk uses as a general health tonic and for cancer and chronic conditions such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
The noni fruit is most commonly combined with other fruits (such as grape) to make juice. Preparations of the fruit and leaves are also available in capsules, tablets, and teas.

I'm here to tell you that it tastes AWFUL!!!! So if you're gonna drink it, you'll definitely need to mix it with something more palatable unless you're literally someone of great intestinal fortitude.

The tree is quite attractive with its big leaves.
