Moringa Trees

R80.00

The fruits, leaves and flowers of the Moringa Tree contain exceptionally high quantities of potassium, vitamins A and C, iron, calcium, and omega-3, -6 and -9. It is also packed with antioxidants and anti-inflammatories. It protects the hair, skin and liver, fights cancer and treats oedema.

 

 

The leaves can be eaten raw or cooked like a leaf vegetable. Often, they are dried and ground into moringa leaf powder to be sprinkled over food, in soups, stews, and so on. Immature pods can be boiled like green beans or eaten raw as a snack. The flowers make a delicious tea. The leaves are highly nutritious for farm animals and poultry. It’s no wonder that it is called the “tree of life”.

Position – Plant your moringa tree in full sun. This tree can survive strong winds and helps to prevent soil erosion. Moringa trees can tolerate light frost but need to be covered          in extremely cold areas. They may lose their leaves in frosty conditions, but will recover in the spring.

 

Size – This tree is a slender, fast-growing tree that can reach up to 12 metres tall.

 

Soil Type – Sandy or loamy soil with very good drainage is ideal for your moringa tree, which produces a long, thick taproot that does not like to be waterlogged.

 

Watering – Initially, the tree requires watering regularly for the first 2 months. Once the root is established, it requires very little watering.  It is drought-tolerant and only requires watering once a month in dry seasons if there has been no rain. The leaves are good indicators of dryness.

 

Fertilising – Use a generous helping of compost once every few months.

 

Pruning – We recommend cutting the tree back every winter to a height of between 1.5 and 2 metres. This is a good height for harvesting the pods and leaves. Topping also encourages vigorous leaf and pod production.

 

Harvesting – The leaves can be harvested every 6 to 8 weeks. The tree will produce more fruit with each passing year.
