Moringa is the name of the fast growing horseradish tree that has become known in recent years as a "Super Food". The plant which is related to the family of cabbages is native to northern India, but is now grown everywhere around the world in
tropical and subtropical climates. In Ayurveda, the ben oil tree has a long tradition as a medicinal plant. In the kitchen, both the very young fruits and the leaves are used. Depending on their age, they taste spicy like horse-radish spicy or rather nutty. Compared to other vegetable species Moringa contains impressively large amounts of vitamins, minerals, proteins and other nutrients.

Ben oil tree, approx 10 Moringa seeds
Sowing and cultivation

It is best if the seed shells are cracked open carefully before further treatment. The inner core of the seed is then soaked in water for 24 hours. Then the soaked seeds should be sown approx. 1 cm deep in seed compost and kept warm. Since the soil should have at least 25 °C for germination, a heating mat is very helpful. Moringa likes lots of light, sun and water.
