I am looking for a cutting actually. Its called Moringa Oleifera I believe, Murungay in Tamil and Malay I think. The leaves are very good for immune system I hear, fruits also edible and sold in Little India. In my home garden in Malaysia we used to have a tree but that was long ago, before my family moved.I am sure there are some growing 'wild' here or on the roadside.If you know where to get cuttings please let me know.

Yes, I have Moringa. But mine is just grown from a cutting. Very small still, so can't share with you yet.

Actually, I got this from my Filipino domestic helper who went home and came back with some cuttings. They also pronounce it as "Ma-roong-gai" in Philippines. They are plentiful there. The leaves can be eaten too. So, perhaps you can find them in the wet markets too.

Yes its plentiful in Philippines and I understand they use it for several medical conditions like infertility. In fact there was a programme on this on Okto.
Leaves are sold in Little India sometimes but beacuse it doesnt keep well tends to be faded by the time we buy and bring home.I will continue to look for a cutting from someone with a mature tree.

Hi everyone

From my post in another thread, found out I actually am holding on to 2 bags of Moringa Oleifera seeds.

Given by some people in Cebu. I will keep a few to try growing this herb tree, and am offering the rest to anyone who wants to grow too. Please PM me and I will send each person 3-4 seeds each. I think I have enough for about 10-15 people.

Unfortunately, I will not be able to do sending until 3rd week June - am away. Thank you for understanding.

thanks
