Moringa Tree Seeds

Germination of Seeds

Moringa tree seeds have no dormancy period, so as soon as they are mature, they have the ability to germinate. The seeds are viable, if stored in a cool, dry place, for up to one year.

For rapid germination you can try one of the following: 1. Soak the seeds in water for 24 hours,
2. Crack the shells before you plant the seeds, or 3. Remove the shells and plant the kernels only.

Moringa Seed Harvesting

When harvesting for eating, pick the pods when they are still young and crisp. The seeds can be left to mature and then removed from the pods to be roasted like nuts or eaten like peas.

Extraction of Moringa Tree Oil

When extracting oil from seeds, let the pods dry while still on the tree. Prop up any branches that have many pods and harvest just before the pods split. Store the seeds in hessian sacks, in a cool, dry place. After the seeds are crushed for their oil, the fibrous remains are a useful flocculant, to remove harmful bacteria from drinking water.
