Morinda citrifolia, commonly known as great Morinda, Indian mulberry, Noni, Beach Mulberry, and Cheese fruit, is a tree in the coffee family, Rubiaceae. Widely cultivated throughout the tropics and naturalized in many regions, it can reach heights of up to 9 meters. The tree features large, dark green, shiny leaves with deep veins and produces flowers and fruits year-round. The fruit is a multiple fruit, often referred to as “cheese fruit” due to its pungent odor when ripening. Initially green, it transitions to a waxy yellow and eventually ripens to a whiteness before dropping from the tree.
Fruiting Time: The tree begins bearing fruits within 1-2 years.
Noni, also known as Cheese Fruit, has various fruit uses. It is often consumed fresh or juiced for its potential health benefits. Additionally, the fruit can be processed into dietary supplements, herbal extracts, and cosmetic products due to its reputed medicinal properties.
Water Schedule – Water when topsoil (1-2 inches) feels dry to the touch. Water thoroughly in the summer and reduce watering in winter and rainy seasons. The non-bearing trees 4-5 years of age are irrigated at weekly intervals.
Sun Exposure – More than 6 hours of direct bright sunlight a day is ideal for plants. These trees are heavy feeders and need full sun to grow their golden fruit. It is a tropical plant, so keep it in the sun for 6-8 hours.
Fertilizer – During the main growing season (June-July) feed the plant with organic fertilizer. For young trees, fertilize once a month, for large trees three to four times a year. The quantity varies depending on the size of the tree.
Maintenance – The water needs for an Alphonso mango tree are high, as is the case with many fruit trees. Give these trees water daily while they are young. Provide water about once per week or more when the tree is a bit older and more established.
