MORINGA - THE UNSUNG HERO

We are dedicated to singing the praises of this forgotten hero of a tree!
Moringa is called by many names, worldwide - regardless of the name, the tree is still
the same. What else can you grow that can sustain life, grow up to 15 feet its first  year,
contains significant amounts of Calcium, Protein, Vitamin C, Vitamin A, all of the essential
amino acids - and then some - and tastes wonderful? All parts of the tree are edible - the
leaves, the flowers, the pods, and the seeds.

(The ROOT is also edible, however, we advise that people DO NOT EAT IT. The root bark contains a substance,
which acts as a neurotoxin - and can be EXTREMELY toxic, and dangerous to your nervous system.
So,...why bother with it?)
 

In 2008, we started planting Moringa Oleifera,  Moringa Stenopetala, and Moringa
Ovalifolia trees.  At present, we have about 500 of them growing, and are planting more
continuously. For a source of extreme nutrition, it just about cannot be topped. Because
it is a tropical tree, Moringa will be a challenge for those who live in a cold climate, BUT...
you can grow it just about anywhere. Here in Florida,  Moringa trees can stay outside
year-round. In colder climates, your Moringa tree can be grown in any large container,
and simply brought inside when the temperatures drop.

OUR FAVORITE MORINGA VARIETY

We are actively growing Moringa Stenopetala, and Moringa Oleifera. I must say, that the
African Moringa - Moringa Stenopetala - is my favorite. The leaves are larger, and have a "meatier"
flavor to them than the other varieties we have grown, and it takes less time to gather enough
of them, for a meal. However, all of the varieties' leaves are delicious!b5
