Moringa seeds are large, circular-shaped seeds which grow inside the equally large pods of the moringa oleifera tree. Moringa seed pods can reach lengths of well over a foot in length, and each pod can provide over a dozen large moringa seeds.
Moringa seeds have two sets of thin flaps extending from the main kernel of the seeds. These flaps can serve as wings for carrying the seed away from the mother tree. Wind can push these moringa seeds across the ground until they find a resting place to germinate.
Unlike the fast-growing leaves of the moringa oleifera tree, moringa seed pods do not grow back every few months. Moringa trees produce seed pods on a yearly basis, much like the production habits of other trees. It is usually worth the wait for moringa trees to produce their seed pods. Moringa trees give off incredible volume of seed pods during their reproduction months. An average-sized moringa tree of fifteen to twenty feet in height can produce dozens or even hundreds of seed pods, yielding thousands of moringa seeds.
