I have collected the first batch of Moringa seeds . :tup: :clap: I expect they are Moringa_oleifera but can’t confirm that.The mature trees have the same leaves and flowers as my young one from Daleys.Some of you have contacted me already but if you still want seeds, or if you haven’t yet put your hand up for some, please pm me for my address.People in Tasmania and WA please check that it’s OK for me to send you seeds.
The seeds are quite bumpy and won’t go through the 60c slot at the PO.I will post pics.So please send me a self addressed envelope for $1.20.I will put a little bubble wrap around the seeds.I think this will protect them enough,although it might damage the little wingie bits on the side.That shouldn’t affect germination.
Moringa seeds do not have a dormancy period and should be sown fresh.If you have any frost they should be started in pots in a green house I guess.If you don’t have frost I expect they can be grown in pots or in situ.
I will repost a link later that will give you more information about growing conditions etc.There are heaps more pods to be collected, not dried out enough yet.As you can see they are quite long and hold between twenty and a dozen seeds in each.April 5, 2012 at 12:38 am #522835Bandicoot ValleyMember
Thanks BW. I was going to get some to send to a friend on Eyre Peninsula, but we went there last week & they already had one growing so I took one of their pods & a couple of little cuttings.April 5, 2012 at 1:42 am #522836Judi BKeymaster

Good one BV.Interesting pods aren’t they.April 5, 2012 at 2:30 am #522838Bandicoot ValleyMember
The one I got is still green. I’m assuming I wait for it to dry out before getting the seeds out?April 5, 2012 at 2:50 am #522839
I guess so assuming it dries out OK.If it doesn’t I will have plenty.The ones in the photo came out of a pod that was already splitting on the tree.How big was your friend’s tree? One main trunk? Or a branching trunk?April 5, 2012 at 3:23 am #522840pennyMember
Yes please Blue Wren. I have checked and found it is fine for me to have them. No problems at all. I would love some. I will PM you with my address.April 6, 2012 at 3:41 am #522841
Any more for Moringa seeds?
Would be interesting if we could post pics of how they grow?April 7, 2012 at 3:01 pm #522842MuzzyMember
I have sent you a PM 🙂April 7, 2012 at 9:42 pm #522843mumof6Member
can you grow them in a large pot and cut them to keep small? will pm as I have a friend from the moldives islandsApril 8, 2012 at 2:47 am #522844
I think you probably could……they seem to be very obliging in many ways!! 🙂April 8, 2012 at 8:09 pm #522845SteveKeymaster
Umm, trrot-an, that link looks a bit suspect. I haven’t clicked on it to find out but I don’t believe it has anything to do with moringa trees………..
Please correct me if I’m wrong.
