Frequently Asked Questions
What Happens if My Order of Moringa Trees Arrive Damaged?
When you order from Here the package of moringa trees also comes with 10 free seeds so you can grow more trees right away. Read the Planting Instructions
And If your trees arrive damaged, first cut the broken stems off completely and care for the root-ball or tuber. Give it some water and Sun.
Plant the root-ball or tuber in a small pot or cup that has several holes in the bottom for drainage.
Fill the pot with sandy-well draining organic soil. Then place the root-ball or tuber in the sandy-soil and cover slightly.
Just because the stem is broken, doesn't mean the tree will not grow a new stem nor that it is dead. Give it a little time to re-grow an entire new stem.
After some time, if you're still not seeing any sign of new growth (depending on the time of year) contact us for a replacement.

What Do I Get From You Harvesting My Trees?
If you need help trimming your moringa trees, contact a member near you and schedule a harvest.
At the time of your appointment, the harvester can provide you with compensation of $USD or in a trade of Moringa Products, based on the weight of your moringa material.
Payout is determined by weight of your moringa material. Each harvesters prices for payout vary slightly. On average you can get about $10/kg of dry weight.
Example: What will you get from 1 tree. One of your Trees may harvest about 50lbs of wet/fresh greens, that converts to about 10lbs dry weight (1/5), which converts to about 5kg of dried greens. So that's worth about ($10/kg) or $50 in your pocket.
Or get a trade in products, either the ones directly made from your tree/s. Talk more directly with the harvester and work out a deal with them at the time of harvest.
Or use a harvest voucher to get anything worth the amount of your harvested weight at GrowMoringa.Shop.
Harvest Vouchers are provided by the harvester at the time of weighing your harvest on site.

How Much Can I Make From Growing Moringa?
You can make a living selling moringa at the farmers market, known as a face-to-face sale under the cottage rule industry labeling practices.
The amount you can make is determined by the weight your trees produce.
The best way to make money from moringa is by selling the young trees or seedlings and also the seeds, then the oil.
Next, as your trees get bigger, sell the fresh leaves. Then, sell the dried leaves. Use a certified drying facility for safety. The least amount of processing the better. Selling powder and capsules requires more certifications.
Selling Moringa for Human Consumption Requires More Certifications.
Sell moringa as an animal food or as a plant food to maximize your barrier to entry into the moringa tree industry. That's why we have BioStimulant.

How Many Moringa Trees Can I Grow On an Acre?
If you're wanting to grown full size moringa trees you can get about 200 to 300 per acre if you plant them in staggered rows 10 to 15 feet apart.
Here is a video explaining how to do the orchard style planting on a acre.
If you are looking to do a more intense operation you can get tens of thousands of trees on an acre if you plant an intensive bed to get more bio mass.
Here is a video explaining how to plant an intensive bed to get 100,000 moringa plants on one acre.
How Big Will My Moringa Get?
The moringa tree can reach 30ft tall. In the first couple of years it's good practice to keep your moringa trees shorter and bushy until it can hold the weight of the drumsticks and produce more of them. In the first two years it's good to trim them back and pop all the flowers off.
Here is a video about why and how to keep your moringa trees bushy.
I Live in a Cold Climate, Can I Still Grow Moringa Trees?
Moringa is a Tropical/Subtropical tree. In zones below 8b it will be difficult to keep your trees alive during winter. With that said, most areas will be able to grow moringa as a summer annual. At the end of the summer season pull out your short bushy trees and you'll have tubers you can sell or save for the next year.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is all Moringa the Same?
There are 13 types of moringa. The most common, Moringa Oleifera, has several varieties like PKM1, MOMAX, etc.
If Ordering Online How do I Know for 100% certainty is is a quality product in every way?
You only know the quality if you take the time as a consumer to get to know your moringa farmer. I've been growing Moringa for 7 years in Tampa, FL.
Are Seeds the Best Method to Take Moringa?
The best way for you and me to take moringa could be different. Find out what is the best for you. The seeds are great to eat and have really great properties and some side-effects like "detoxing". The leaves are very popular for mineralizing and protein as well.
Is there Anything that Can Affect the Potency of Moringa at Any Stage of Growing or Harvesting? If so how can I know those things were Done on the Moringa I Order?
Much of the potency depends on the what's in the soil. If it's in the soil, it's in the leaves; whether it's good or bad. Moringa has a propensity to pull up heavy metals. The best way to know is to talk to your moringa farmer. My number is 813-567-3100.
How Does Moringa Grown in the US compare to Moringa Grown in It's Originating Atmosphere in property and effects?
Moringa can grow all over the world. Though the US is not it's home country, as long as it's in the soil and they have good drainage, the test and research findings occur all over the world. It's all about it's environment.
If I live somewhere that is cold for much of the year will my moringa tree thrive being inside for 6 months of the year?
You can bring them inside but they may not thrive as much as they would if grown outside.
Grow Moringa anywhere in the summer as a short bushy annual. Replant every summer.
What is the absolute best place to purchase seeds for consumption? Are they the same seeds for growing the trees?
The best place to purchase seeds for consumption are from me. I have been growing Moringa myself and have a lovely supply of moringa seeds. The particular ones I have are USDA certified organic from Nicaragua. I work directly with the farmer/owner. They are the same seeds you use to grow as well.
Is Moringa Toxic?
I haven't heard about the leaves being toxic to consume. As long as the soil doesn't have heavy metals, then the leaf and drumsticks would be safe (moringa can pull up heavy metals from the soil). The moringa root tubers, after a year, begin to form a skin and collect cyanide and arsenic naturally from the soil and store it in the root as a protective mechanism so bugs don't eat it. Don't eat the root after a year old. All domesticated foods come from wild foods that are toxic, apples, you know the tale, that's true even apples were toxic at some point in time. We've hybridized everything and reduced toxicity levels. Mostly everything we eat in the store was at some point toxic. Moringa has been hybridized thousands of years to become domesticated and safe to consume. The bark is only used on occasions to stop hemorrhaging from both ends if food poisoned. The leaves and drumsticks are the most nutritious plant to consume on land.
