1-18
Soak
1-19
Rinse and soak in very warm tap water
Of note - 2 out of 3 had amber colored water. 1 did not.
Of note - Moringa seeds are known to help purify/clean water. I used tap water with chlorine. Wonder if a difference if soaked with out chlorine in tap water.

Good luck with them StrayDog! Once they get going they are pretty easy plants. As they get older, you can prune them to be a nice clump which increases your harvest. The leaves have lots of benefits to them but start off with small amounts first. Usually when I walk by the them, I'll pluck a few leaves and chew them up. Not sure if that is the best way but I enjoy wondering my yard grazing on various fruits/veg/herbs.

They are pretty easy to propagate from cuttings too.

Nice. Thanks.
I want to put a couple in ground but most will be in planters to take in over the winter. I want to see if I can grow them to seed in my zone 6 area. But better to k ow they can root from cuttings

Good idea on the pots! I don't think they'll survive outdoors in Z6 without some serious protection? Z9 might be the lowest for it???

Yes zone 6 should be a killer. I will be building a cattle panel hoop house/high tunnel for some required elements for my outdoor grow. Hoping that will extend my season long enough for mature seed pods.

I've heard it called a "multi vitamin tree" because of the leaves.

From the bakers creek website
https://www.rareseed...isaAhopEALw_wcB

“This plant is prized for its very high-protein leaves, its rich concentration of minerals and vitamins, and its heavy load of anti-oxidants! Leaves, blooms, seeds and immature seedpods, called “drumsticks”, are edible; seeds are source of a high-quality oil.”

Of note there is not much green leaf that has an amino acid profile that is considered a complete protein. This tree seems more then just a multi vitamin. It’s like a damn nutritional protein smoothie - just add liquid and blend lol

Awesome undertaking!

I've always wanted to see these grown.

Hope you get some love back from these seedlings when they mature. I'll be staying tuned.

No root development for transplant at this time
Several seedlings are this size so I decided to transplant one out of red cup to check root and no roots yet showing out side of the soil mass971DA413-F4BA-4D0F-84A9-58C228F9CBA2.jpeg
