Some more about moringa trees

The Palm Beach Post - Residences - - Front Page -

Since writ­ing last week about moringa trees, I have had many calls and e-mails about this lit­tle tree and its pow­ers. You can buy them on Ama­zon.com. (Co­in­ci­den­tally, they ac­tu­ally come from Brazil’s Ama­zon Rain For­est.)

I was in­tro­duced to them back in the 1950s and grew them for awhile when I lived in Cuba. I was fas­ci­nated by the seeds and their prop­er­ties, and also the power of the leaves when you chewed them.

They are said to have all the heal­ing pow­ers of many trees wrapped all into one lit­tle “drum­stick tree .”

Yes, the drum­stick tree is the moringa; it can grow as tall or short as you like.

I bought my moringa seedlings on Ama­zon.com and they are do­ing well.
