Live Trees

$35.00

 

We ship  2 saplings by our default shipper USPS;  we also use Fedex if necessary.  We germinate the seeds in a Jiffy 7 plug for optimum growth, protection of the root  and ease of shipping. We then wrap the Jiffy plug in foil and card stock making it quite secure for the trip. It ships in a box with dimensions 20″ x 4″ x 4″.  We may prune the saplings to fit into the box.

They might look normal when they arrive in 2-3  days or they could seem stressed from wilting or yellowing especially if  they get delayed or it has been hot.  But they spring back in no time.

Enjoy fresh moringa leaf in all your cooking or fresh preparations. Use as you would Kale or Spinach.  Juice the leaf for a real mind and body boost. You can also ferment the fresh leaf with other vegetables  in a kimchi or sauerkraut.

Trees ship separately if you are ordering other products.

Description

Of the 12 moringa species we sell only the Moringa oleifera species. This is the fastest growing and most highly productive of all the species. It can achieve full maturity in 2 years and be productive in a matter of months.  It originated in India and has flourished all around the world for centuries. Spanish missionaries brought it to Baja California in the 1500’s.   Explorers took it all over the world especially to those zones where the climate is ideal for it, Central  America, South America, Africa, the Asian Pacific and the Philippines.

For portability or space limitations  you can grow moringa  in PVC, ceramic or metal  tubes with great results. The optimal size tube has a  6″ diameter and is 3 ft long. The length allows the taproot to thrive in a soft medium and achieve superior length while the 6 inch diameter permits the root to expand laterally.  Tubes or 24″ length are OK too but the longer tube is optimal. Fill the tube with organic potting soil, worm castings, sea minerals and organic compost. Plant the sapling or bare seeds on top of the tube leaving  3-6  inches recessed from the top for water capture.  Good planting……
