Babasiga kura / noni farm
I was very interested to meet a family in Labasa who have developed a business growing and producing kura medicine. Fijian Kura is called noni in many other Pacific countries.
Rahega’s family came from Naseakula village and settled in Dreketilailai which is about 25 k out of Labasa in a beautiful mountain area. I met the family when I was in Labasa three weeks ago and they invited me to their farm. As an alternative to sugar cane they have planted kura (noni) and established an excellent business, producing bottles of kura medicine for sale. The farmer uses seeds from the fruit to plant and start the seedlings. He also breeds sheep for the Fiji market.
