Discover the benefits of noni, a delicious tropical fruit in terms of its properties and nutritional qualities, but with a bitter taste and not a very pleasant smell.
Who wouldn’t be able to enjoy the wonderful taste of a tropical fruit? Both its flavor and its appearance are in a certain sense different –and very characteristic, especially if we compare them with the fruit that is definitely not of tropical origin. This is the case, for example, of such delicious fruits as kiwano, carambola or mangosteen.
Today we want to talk to you about noni, a delicious tropical fruit from the island of Tahiti, in the South Pacific, although we can also find it in Fiji, New Zealand, Australia and Malaysia.
It is a fruit that is obtained from the noni plant, and whose appearance is actually very characteristic, since it is the same size as a potato, has a yellow color (which turns into white once it ripens), and counts with a really curious shape, as you can see in the snapshots that accompany this article.
