20 Fresh Seeds w/Instructions - Also known as Malunggay, Horseradish Tree, Drumstick and Miracle Tree.
Moringa is a useful small, deciduous plant of the family Moringaceae, native to tropical Asia but also naturalized in Africa and tropical America. The Tree has fern like leaves and highly scented white flowers and long bean like seed pods. Seed pods are used as a vegetable, especially in south Indian cuisine, e.g. drumstick sambar. Leaves can be eaten raw or cooked like spinach, dried pulverized, young seed pods can be cooked many ways, seeds are edible, cooked flowers taste like mushrooms, and the roots can be made into an occasional condiment that tastes like horseradish. Excellent herb for smoothies!
The seeds sprout willingly although with varying germination times, and grow exceeding fast (4-6 ft one season). Moringa likes it hot and if planting outdoors will do best in USDA zones 9 or higher. You can grow it indoor and keep it any size you want. Moringa takes heavy pruning with ease. In fact, even in the areas of the world where it is grown as a crop, the tree is cut back to about 4ft tall each year so that the pods and leaves are easier to reach.
