Moringa - Dwarf

Easy to grow as an annual in the North! (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? Love the rich nutrition!

What are the cons? Shallow roots

Review:

I love the long pods, much longer than the standard variety. But here in S. Florida I wouldn't know it's a dwarf variety. Mine are towering over our roof even though I keep cutting it back. I love adding the young pods and leaves to my green smoothies and salads. I also love adding it to our compost and make my own fertilizer from the leaves and flowers. I just need to keep mine trimmed back more, although I do like the shade it provides over the house in the hot summer days. It's easy to grow from seed, and once it's established it grows so fast!

What are the pros? Growing it in pots

What are the cons? none

Review:

Growing it in pots since I know I will have to bring it indoors if I want to winter it over here in Missouri. I started in 2 small pots and they both germinated and I already have had to re pot them into larger pots. I am growing for the iron content as I am anemic and want more natural foods to help with this condition. The fresh leaves are MUCH more tasty and easier on my digestion then the dried stuff I have purchased at health food stores. I can hope I will be able to keep my plants alive and growing so I can harvest more but so far I am happy. Thank you Baker Creek for offering this unique item!

What are the pros? Easy after germination.

What are the cons? May be difficult to germinate!

Review:

For successful germination try one of these methods: 1)If planting in soil after soaking them overnight they MUST be planted very shallow! I germinated only two seeds this way as I suspect I planted them too deep! 2)The preferred method seems to be germinating them in a moist air tight container such as a food storage container kept in a dark warm place. Soaked over-night or slightly longer the seeds are drained and placed upon a couple layers of paper towels or napkins that have been thoroughly moistened BUT NO STANDING WATER! Check them daily until you begin to see the "root" with a tiny growth at the end that will be the leaves. Then plant so this portion is at the soil surface. They like moisture but not soggy soil. Also they produce a somewhat bulbous (caudiciform) portion at the base of the stem. Leave partially exposed or very lightly buried. I have not tried method (2) after a little research this seems to be the preferred method! I have germinated other seeds this way!

Review:

These germinated in February but died when weather turned a little colder. Replanted later in the year and had one survivor. Later, I read that in a pot, it's good to plant several (5-6) near to each other so you can harvest often. More seeds have been purchased to try it. In the meantime, I have one roughly 3-foot-tall plant that has only one lower diagonal branch so far with signs that it will branch out higher up eventually. For now, it's mainly growing vertically. I don't harvest much off of this plant (usually just cut the tips off for sampling; so far, only one vertical cut to encourage branching). Most of the leaves have little flavor and are a bit thick/chewy, but after the plant matured some, I sampled a few leaves that tasted more like mustard leaf (nice flavor) or watercress. A neighbor from India said that even though the plant is not known for excellent flavor, it is consumed for the nutritional value and added to many dishes.
