Many Haitians are believer of "remed fey" or "bush medicine". They knew the use of cure-to-all medicinal plant Asosi or cerasee or corailee in English which grows all over South Florida, especially in abundance during the rainy season. It is also known as the bitter gourd or bitter cucumber in Asia, South America and the Middle East.
The magic healing power of this green plant with five point leaves is not a secret; it is known to many habitants of South Florida's Caribbean community. Cacheta is not alone; many inhabitants of Miami with Caribbean origin grow this magic herbal plant in their backyards and call it as the "King of the Forest". They do not consider it as an annoying weed; rather consider this as a remedy for just about every ailment.
