These seeds were collected from Morinda citrifolia, also known as Beach Mulberry, Cheese Fruit, Hog Apple, Indian Mulberry, and Noni. This tree likes to live in sun to partial shade where it can grow up to 30 feet high. The beautiful white flowers are fragrant and bloom repeatedly through the year where they attract a wide variety of bees, birds, and butterflies. In some areas this is a famine food but in other places it is a staple food. The fruit is used to make beverages and is also cooked into dishes such as curries. Young leaves and shoots can be cooked and eaten as vegetables or they can be eaten raw. The seeds can also be roasted and eaten. The bark from the root can be used to make a red dye.
