Hi @poocut, Greetings from #HHG10! I've seen mengkudu when I was small but hated it due to its smell. I don't know it had so many medicinal benefits, and that it has flowers. I thought mengkudu just straight grow out as fruit without flowering first, so that's a new knowledge for me. Thanks for sharing, and for this great blog, here's an upvote for me. Keep up the great work! and stay blessed!
