Moringa Trees

Moringa Trees, which are also known as “Ben Oil Trees” and “Drumstick 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.

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 sicmilar to the way green beans are prepared and enjoyed while the seeds are best when baked.

How to Grow 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 backyard trees daily!

There are many reasons to grow Moringa, even if just a single tree. Gram for gram, Moringa can have three times the potassium you would find in a banana, four times the vitamin A found in a carrot, and seven times the vitamin C found in an orange. Moringa is also rich in minerals, vitamins, essential amino acids, phytochemicals, vegetable proteins, anti-oxidants, anti-inflammatory agents, and carbohydrates.

Moringa is a resilient tree. It can survive in a variety of climates and substandard soils. It is as fast growing as it is hearty. Normal growth ranges from 3-5 meters per year if left uncropped. It is one of the fastest growing biomasses on the planet when properly nourished. A fully mature Moringa tree can grow to 35 feet.
