Nony or Guanoni is a fruit believe to cure diabetis. It is highly anti-oxidant, slowing the aging process. Its is believed to have been brought to America from India as a medicinal plant.
The nony tree in the picture is in Izabal at the entrance of the Siete Altares waterfalls.

You can now find Nony or Guanoni extract at supermarkets thanks to a Guatemalan couple who in 2005 applied to a USAID funding to start a Guanoni plantation and processing plant. Three hundred sixty projects were presented and this was one of the twelve selected.
