Spring is the perfect time to plant Moringa. It will love the heat that is about to come and take off… Moringa can grow up to 20 feet in one season if given enough heat, water and nutrients. The leaves are the most nutritious part of the plant, being a significant source of vitamins B, C, A, K, manganese, and protein, among other essential nutrients.
It tolerates a wide range of soil conditions, but prefers a neutral to slightly acidic (pH 6.3 to 7.0), well-drained sandy or loamy soil. It is a sun- and heat-loving plant, and does not tolerate freezing or frost. Moringa is particularly suitable for dry regions, as it can be grown using rainwater without expensive irrigation
The leaves are the most widely used parts of this plant. They contain three times more iron than spinach. They also have antibacterial properties and hence can be used as a purifier and as a natural detoxifier. Moringa seeds mixed in impure water can help in absorbing all the impurities.
The leaves can be cooked and used like spinach. They are also commonly dried and crushed into a powder to be used in soups, sauces and smoothies. As with most foods, heating moringa above 140 °F destroys some of the nutritional value.
