Non- GMO Conventional (Traditional) Moringa Oleifera Seeds for consumption and planting. Germination guaranteed!
NEW fresh batch of seeds!
APPROX. 175 SEEDS! WE BAG OUR SEEDS BY WEIGHT ( 1.5 Oz)
Please note that our seeds are organic. Just like produce at your grocery store or local farmer’s market, you may find an occasional pest in seeds that are not shelled. This does not harm the bag of seeds. Our seeds are for agriculture purposes however they can be eaten as they are not treated with any chemicals. We over-weigh our seed bags to make up for any hollow seeds (which does happen). Dark shells on seeds or smaller seeds DO NOT affect germination and that is what these seeds are for. If you choose to eat these instead of the edible, please note those seeds do not constitute a bad order as THESE ARE EDIBLE and good for PLANTING.
Conventional (also known as Traditional) Moringa Oleifera Seeds are organically grown, Non GMO and when planted the trees may produce seed pods once a year once fully mature (approximately 18 mths). Moringa’s have many benefits. It is known as the tree you can eat if you had no other food and survive due to its high level of nutrients.
Moringa Nutrients :
3 times the Potassium in bananas.
7 times the Vitamin-C as in oranges.
25 times the Iron in spinach.
4 times the Calcium in milk.
4 times the Vitamin A in carrots.
Moringa Health Benefits:
A "super food" some call it! The Moringa will give aid to:
Malnutrition, HIV/AIDS, balance blood sugar levels, cardiovascular benefits, enhances circulation, antibiotic properties, anti-fungal properties, reduces inflammation, combat different cancers, eliminates free radicals, enhances the heart, reverses the aging process, increases your energy, sharpens your mental, deter allergies, assist cholesterol levels, improves liver function, promotes hair growth, clears acne, appetite enhancer, natural aphrodisiac, builds immune system, produces 40% more breast milk in pregnant woman and livestock, also is very effective against glaucoma according to several scholars.
Growing from seed: Soak seeds overnight before planting. Seeds can be started indoors, but must be moved outdoors as soon as practical. The seedlings grow tall and thin, and need wind to strengthen the trunk, lest they fall over. Seedlings and young trees are a favorite browse for deer and other herbivores, and so must be protected. Seed sown directly in the ground produces a very deep taproot, which will continue until enough water/moisture is reached, even at the expense of not growing the trunk or leaves. Because of this taproot, the tree is very drought-resistant, once established, and will recover even from a hard freeze (hence one of its names, the 'Never-Die' Tree). However, container trees can be killed by 8 hours @ 26 degrees. Trees often grow 15 feet the first year, and may reach a maximum height of 65 feet. The wood is brittle, so the trees should not be planted near houses, where a limb might break off in the wind.
Height: 15-20 ft. (4.7-6 m)
Hardiness: USDA Zone 10a: to -1.1 °C (30 °F)
USDA Zone 10b: to 1.7 °C (35 °F)
USDA Zone 11: above 4.5 °C (40 °F)
Sun Exposure: Full Sun
Bloom Color: White/Near White
Bloom Time: Late Spring/Early Summer
Foliage: Evergreen, Blue-Green
Other details: Flowers are fragrant
Average Water Needs: Water regularly; do not over water
Soil pH requirements: 6.1 to 6.5 (mildly acidic), 6.6 to 7.5 (neutral)
Care: M. oleifera prefers Full/Partial Sun and may be planted as little as 1 foot apart to make a living, harvestable fence. Unless grown as a specimen, the trees should be cut back to 3 feet once they reach 6-9 feet; the trunk will branch profusely, and these branches should be pinched or pruned when they reach 12-18 inches length. M. oleifera will tolerate many other plants to be grown close to it, as apparently it uses nutrients other plants do not.
Propagation Methods: From seed; winter sow in vented containers, coldframe or unheated greenhouse
From seed; direct sow after last frost
Seed Collecting: Allow pods to dry on plant; break open to collect seeds
Usable Moringa Tree Parts:
Leaves: One of the best - if not ~the~ best - sources of plant-based nutrition. Strip leaves off and remove as much stem as possible (it does not soften with cooking, reminding the diner of chewing on fine wire). Leaves can be eaten raw, used in salads, boiled (the water is nutritious), baked, stir-fried or used in any recipe calling for Spinach (although M. oleifera leaves are about 11 times The mature, dried seeds of M. oleifera yield what was considered the finest watch making quality lubricant available. The purified and strained oil is of very fine quality and does not gum or turn rancid. Only modern synthetic oils approach "Ben Oil" (or "Benzoil") in quality.
For water purification, take 1 to 1.5 seeds which haved matured and dried on the tree per 1 Quart of water. Grind the seed(s) into powder and add them to the water. Shake well. Allow to stand minimum 4 hours in direct sunlight. Carefully pour off resultant clean water and boil, as a secondary measure.
Flowers: Edible, and one of the best sources of nectar for Honeybees; highly recommended tree for beekeepers.
Root: The young taproot may be harvested and the covering scraped off for use as a Horseradish substitute (although I personally value my trees too highly to kill them for their roots!) The raw mature leaves may also, upon occasion, have quite a spicy Horseradish tang to them.more nutritious than Spinach!).
Pods: Small pods eaten green, as green beans. For middle-sized pods, before the seeds distort the pod, take the seeds and use them as cooked beans, or roast them, as with peanuts; the seeds have a peanutty flavor. For old, mature pods, take the dry seeds, dehull them and grind them into an extremely nutritious flour.
The leaves are believed to have a stabilizing effect on blood pressure and control glucose levels. They are also used to treat anxiety, diarrhea and inflammation of the colon, skin infections, scurvy, intestinal parasites, and many other conditions.
The green pods, the leaves and the flowers are used in a variety of Thai dishes, such as curries, stir-fries, soups, omelets and salads.
One funny thing M. oleifera trees may do: The trees usually begin to bloom at 18 months, plus or minus. The first time they begin to bloom, the branches on some trees may become very flexible, almost rubbery, even to the point of being able to tie the branch into a loose knot. If your branches do so, and you do not want this behavior, stake upright until they have bloomed and set pods. You may also be able to re-form the branch by hand sufficiently to make it stand on its own.
