Scarify Noni Seeds With FingerNail Clippers to Aid Germination

peterchristopher's picture

In order to get your noni seeds to germinate, you need to crack the hard shells somehow.  Otherwise, the seeds will simply sit for month and years without germinating at all.  The best way is to use fingernail clippers and just clip off one quarter of the seed at the thin end, so that the water can enter there.  Then of course you plant the seeds just like any other seed in a small starter pot, maybe a 4" pot, and when it is 6" tall after 3 months you can transplant it.  One to two years later you'll have ripe noni in your tree that you grew from your own seed.

Good Info

But the video was a little hard to follow due to camera shake, but I think I got it. I would like to see more videos posted on the site as a "how-to". I will try to make some up on my next trip.
