Morinda citrifolia is a tree in the coffee family, Rubiaceae. Its native range extends through Southeast Asia and Australasia, and the species is now cultivated throughout the tropics and widely naturalised. It is commonly known as great morinda, Indian mulberry, beach mulberry and cheese fruit. The green fruit, leaves, and root/rhizomes were traditionally used in Polynesian cultures to treat menstrual cramps, bowel irregularities, diabetes, liver diseases, and urinary tract infections.
Growing from seeds:
It is important to take a file or sandpaper and really roughen the seeds first, otherwise it'll take months until germination.
Afterwards let the seeds soak with water for about 3 days and then plant about 0,5-1cm deep into moist soil.
Important is to keep it constantly moist and at high temperatures of at least 25°C
