Moringa is full of nutrients. The seeds can be used to purify water. You can see a couple of posts on the benefits here and here.
I received my moringa root through the mail and was happy with the size and condition.
I opted to plant my root in a large container so I could move the plant into the greenhouse during the winter. In recent years we had a winter day where the high never got out of the 20s. I know that is warm to many of you, but it is scary cold to me. I opted not to take any chances on losing my moringa tree.
The picture above was taken at the end of July . The picture below is what the root looked like about a month later.
The tree is continuing to grow well. I am starting to look more into the uses of the leaves. It seems to be a good substitute for kale in soups and the young leaves are often used in salads. The dried leaves are used for tea or ground into a powder.
Are you interested in growing moringa? Blue Yonder Urban Farms has a store and offers a 12 month old moringa tree root (which is what I received), cuttings, and seeds.
