About Moringa

The moringa oleifera tree has been called the Tree of Life by the people of its native habitat, as it has so many nutritional uses. Moringa oleifera seeds have a unique and pleasing appearance. They come with their very own wings to ensure that the wind carries them to fertile ground far away from the parent plant. When firmly rooted, they produce one of the most nutritious plant in the world.

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.
