Moringa, also known as the Drumstick Tree, is a fast-growing tree renowned for its highly nutritious leaves and seed pods. The leaves can be eaten fresh or dried and used in herbal teas, providing a rich source of vitamins and minerals. The seeds have been used in traditional medicine and have the unique ability to purify water. Moringa is a versatile tree that can also be used in culinary dishes, making it a valuable addition to any garden.
Moringa plants must be grown in containers unless growing the plant outdoors in zone 9-10. Move container-grown moringa plants indoors or to a protected area during the winter to avoid cold winter temperatures. Soak Moringa seeds overnight, then place them in a moist bag for sprouting, which typically takes 3-14 days at 70-90°. Once sprouted, plant 1" deep in sandy loam soil, keeping moist but not wet. If starting indoors, transplant once roots are established and temperatures are above 75°F. Gradually acclimate seedlings to outdoor conditions before planting.
