@alice and nath: Yes, thank you! I never thought I'd encounter a Noni tree here in the Philippines. Cool.

I know this I just couldn't remember. This was sold in Manila as a miracle fruit in the 1990's. You boil it in water and drink. It taste bitter! These are usually found on coastal areas, right?
