Morinda

Morinda

The genus Morinda comprises approximatively 80 species, distributed in all tropical regions of the world. These species may be trees, shrubs or vines; some, like Morinda citrifolia, are trees that very much resemble vines. All morinda species bear aggregated fruits (or syncarps) that can be fleshy (like with Morinda citrifolia) or dry.

Most species of this genus originate in the area of Borneo, New Guinea, Northern Australia or New Caledonia.
