Moringa Tree Benefits
Moringa Trees, which are also known as 'Ben Oil Trees', are cultivated all over the world and are highly valued for their edible parts that are extremely high in nutrients and minerals, as well as their beautiful ornamental features. Moringa leaves, pods and seeds have more vitamin C than four oranges combined as well as high amounts of calcium, potassium, iron, zinc and more. The leaves can be eaten fresh or dried for teas and powder.
Nutritional Value of Moringa
They're also high in antioxidants, which is great for your overall health. Instead of running to the store for an expensive bottle of multivitamins, simply pick a few leaves for a snack filled with nourishment. By cooking the leaves in boiling water, or eating them fresh you'll be giving your immune system a boost. The seedpods are often cooked similar to the way green beans are prepared and enjoyed while the seeds are best when baked.
Growing Moringa Trees
This is a very fast growing tree. Our 3 ft. trees can turn 8 ft. in a matter of weeks during the growing season. They like to be pruned and thrive in containers. Once planted, keep soil moist until established. We have had great success with growing Moringa in our climate. We harvest from our trees daily!
