One Of The Most Nutritious Plants Available

Moringa Trees, which are also known as 'Ben Oil Trees', are cultivated all over the world and are highly valued for their edible parts that are extremely high in nutrients and minerals, as well as their beautiful ornamental features.

Grab your fork because the leaves, pods, and seeds are edible. Even the roots are edible, causing this tree to be known as the 'Horseradish Tree,' because they have a similar flavor. These parts of the Moringa Tree are often used in recipes all over the world because of their nutritious value.

Moringa leaves, pods and seeds have more vitamin C than four oranges combined as well as high amounts of calcium, potassium, iron, zinc and more. They're also high in antioxidants, which is great for your overall health.

Instead of running to the store for an expensive bottle of multivitamins, simply pick a few leaves for a snack filled with nourishment.

By cooking the leaves in boiling water, or eating them fresh you'll be giving your immune system a boost. The seedpods are often cooked similar to the way green beans are prepared and enjoyed while the seeds are best when baked.

Plant your Moringa trees in the yard to have highly nutritious foliage a short walk away, or place your trees in containers and keep them inside to have tons of healthy snacks within arm's reach.

Moringa trees are a delight to watch as their lush green leaves pop against their uniquely white colored bark. Your tree will stand out as one of the most stunning plants in the neighborhood once it erupts with hundreds of breathtaking white flowers.

After Moringa Trees bloom they start growing their unique pods filled with seeds. The pods are about a foot long and turn a shade of light brown, resembling drumsticks; as a result, the tree is often referred to as the 'Drumstick Tree'. The drumsticks combined with the tree's smooth white bark give it an alluring exotic look.

Our Warehouse Manager is one of the few people in the world who does not like Moringa. He says it's like shipping a giant Mirco-Green. About 15% arrive with some minor broken branches or stems. This is cosmetic and does not affect the tree. Just prune off any damaged foliage or stems and watch the new ones pop out even thicker.

We know fast growing plants, and this is probably the fastest we have seen. Our 3 ft. trees can turn 8 ft. in a matter of weeks during the growing season. They like to be pruned and thrive in containers.

This is a prolific little food factory. Cut off the stems and greens and it comes back even more bountiful.

With healthy lifestyles on the rise, we can't keep the nutritious Moringa tree in stock. Don't hesitate to order yours today.

Moringa Tree

My Moringa tree arrived very well packaged. There was some yellowing on the leaves, but with the transplant and some TLC they recovered quite nicely. Thank you. My family will enjoy the benefits of this tree for years to come.
