(Moringa oleifera) This is a very special dwarf variety from India. Unlike other varieties of moringa, this tree will remain short and is very well suited to container growing, which makes growing it in the U.S much easier. Moringa is native to the tropics and the subtropics, container growing will allow you to bring your tree inside for the winter. this plant is prized for its very high-protein leaves, its rich concentration of minerals and vitamins and its heavy load of anti-oxidants! Leaves, blooms, seeds and immature seedpods called “drumsticks,” are edible; seeds are source of a high quality oil. (WARNING: Roots are reputed to be poisonous, do not eat!)

What are the pros? Good

What are the cons? None

Review:

Just a comment on eating the seed pods. I've read on a few auevedic websites that you don't want to over do it if you eat the seedpods. A little may be good, but too many could cause problems. As with anything new, do your research :)

Review:

I received these seeds promptly and planted them just as quickly! The germination rate was very high all but five have come up so far! These little trees are already a few inches tall and beautiful!

Review:

8 out of 10 seeds germinated. I ended up with 4 plants, all in containers. Had some problems managing the height and pruned too late. Next time I will prune as soon as they reach 5-6' tall. I had hoped to overwinter these in the greenhouse, but they died after a few weeks of nightly lows in the 30s. Will overwinter a few indoors next time. Nice addition to salads, and good for snacking in the garden. No pest or disease problems noted, but the leaves did scald in full summer sun. They seem to prefer part shade.

Review:

I loved Moringa. I had 100% germination. Due to a household move, a miscalculation, and a dog incident, I ended up with only 4 growing. I dehydrated the leaves, and we add them to eggs, soups, meat dishes, etc. They are quite tasty and just add a nice little boost of nutrition. They go effortlessly in smoothies, we just don't make them much. The only critique I have is more for Baker Creek than about the Moringa itself. It would be nice if there were a couple more growing tips included with the package. Two things in particular are important: 1) Moringa absolutely hates vermiculite so if you mix your own potting soils, leave that out. 2) Moringa really likes to be pruned and quite harshly. I didn't know this until about October when I read it on another website. At that point, I basically had 4 long sticks with some green on top. As soon as I cut off the top and each branch in half, it branched lower down the stem. Had I done it sooner, it would have been much bigger and bushier.

Review:

I LOVE THESE LITTLE TREES! They were almost dead due to bad soil then I transplanted them and they're healthy as can be now. I broke one done to the root accidentally and it came back like nothing ever even happened. The leaves have a peppery taste like arugula. They're the easiest thing I've ever grown.
