Noni fruit

Its a great pleasure to me to see this picture. This is from the back side of my children's school. Blogging made me a nature lover and my eyes always searching for new colours and shapes of nature. It was an open house day. I had noticed this fruit and taken the photos. I had asked my friends about its name and at last posted without name. Through comments I got the name Noni. Now I am searching for the malayalam name of this plant. Its a journey to knowledge through the blogs.....

Doesn't look like Othalanga. There is some other name; cant remeber!

Probably this is a fruit known variously as Kattapitavalam, Manjanathhi, Manjanatthi, Mannanatti, Mannapavatta, Mannappavitta (not sure though).

This is Noni (Morinda citrifolia). Pl. read my blog post http://parayilat.blogspot.com/2007/12/medicinal-plants-noni-morinda.html
titled Medicinal Plants: Noni (Morinda citrifolia) planting for profit? in my blog Songs of the waves.

Othalanga is dealt with in Ecology: Ban the ‘suicide tree’?
