Morinda citrifolia

Colombia has four native species of genus Morinda, but this is not one of them. It is called noni in Colombia and rarely for sale, because it does not taste good. It has an unfounded reputation for curing cancer and is eaten for such purpose. However, there may be cancer preventive benefits and other medical benefits. Photographed in Barranquilla.
