Moringa Oleifera

We 'hatch' these Moring plants from seed, incubate them for about 3 weeks, and then nurture them in organic soil until they are about 200 mm high. Some we use as nutrient-rich food ourselves but the better quality plants we sell so others can also enjoy the benefits of this remarkable plant

Buyers should be aware that some Moringa leaves will yellow and fall off during autumn so it's quite normal to see these from time to time. We remove these and let them fertilise the ground around the tree roots. There will be plenty of new growth to replace natural moribundity

Health Benefits

Moringa plant

Young Moringa Oleifera in Yanimon's NZ Garden

If we expect high quality health benefits from the Moringa Oleifera tree then we need to attend to the quality of the plant's environment, which is a good reason for taking exceptional care of the garden. You can grow Moringa trees indoors in large containers and gain the health benefit for most of the year

Moringa trees in a warm garden will grow to 5 metres high and 3-4 metres wide unless pruned back. All of the tree can be used as food apart from the roots. Once the young tree is established, after about 2 months, harvest a few small branches when you need them and use immediately for maximum freshness. Uses include drying the leaves for a herbal beverage, or grinding them to powder and adding a teaspoon or more to breakfast muesli




Moringa Oleifera Pests

Our experience is that the white cabbage 'flutterby' caterpillar is a high risk when growing these shrubs out in the open garden. Once the shrub is established the growth rates seems to outpace the caterpillars' appetite, but we make regular checks to 'soap off' any eggs we spot, and remove the green multi-legged offenders

The cabbage 'flutterby' caterpillar has a weakness. It likes to 'chill out' in the warm sunshine after a good feed so you can remove them fairly easily during afternoons when the sun is shining nicely and the caterpillars are snoozing :-)
