If you are one of those who say, “What’s in a name”, read this… I was eager to know about an uncommon fruit NONI that my friend was researching on. The cartons labelled “Divine Noni” in a juice shop only kindled my curiosity further. Surfed the Net to gather more info about it – was glad to know that it claimed to offer an endless list of health benefits. But my happiness persisted only till I found that the fruit had as awful a name as “VOMIT FRUIT”. This was not music to my ears and my effervescing enthusiasm fizzled out.

I would never again say, “What’s in a name” … Though it is just an identity, it is always nice to hear something pleasant for a name.

    Funny things in this world. I agree with you maam.

  2. I have heard about this fruit as noni, it has got so many medicinal properties and there are companies who make syrups out of this juice,the syrup is even HACCP certified.

    • Even I saw many pharmacies in Chennai and Salem selling this juice. People from villages seem to be very familiar with this fruit. HACCP certification would certainly be a plus for it.
