I'm looking to buy Poncirus trifoliata fruit (Japanese bitter orange) from anyone who will to sell them. I understand the peel and flesh has good anticancer properties, which at the moment is very important to me. You can PM me if you have some or will be expecting some this season. I would greatly appreciate it and will pay a fair price. Thanks.

Larry, grapefruit is supposed to have anti-cancer property too. Maybe research that since grapefruit is available anywhere. Be careful if on blood thinners though since grapefruit can cause bleeding if on blood thinners.

Thank you, I am familiar with the general anticancer benefits of grapefruit and lemons. According to a Korean study, Poncirus trifoliata has potent anticancer properties but is also known to cause stomach illness like a chemotherapy. It was historically used in Asia not only to treat inflammation but for abortion. The mechanism is different than flavonoids, it initiates cellular apoptosis by activating death receptors such as tumor necrosis factor receptor (TNFR). I figured it is worth a try, but I know it is out of season right now.
