Native to x Native from: Como utilizar

Hi, guys! Please help me here... I saw in a book that certain fruit is native to certain country. I had always thought that the preposition that would follow native would be "from". Are both ok or is just from correct? Thanks!

Well, Mayron, I was reviewing the topic and got a little confused again :-( Could you give some examples of each one, as a noun and as an adjective? It'll help a lot. Thanks!
