Moringa seeds can be described as follow
Moringa seeds are large and circular-shaped, and grow inside the lengthy pods of the Moringa oleifera tree. The pods are hard and can reach around or more then 1 foot in length. Every individual Moringa pod can produce more then 10 Moringa seeds.
Moringa oleifera seeds have a unique and enjoyable appearance. The seeds have sets of thin flaps extending from the main kernel. These flaps serve as wings to carry the seeds away from the mother Moringa tree. With the help of the wind, the seeds move across the ground until they find a resting place to germinate and become a tree.
The Moringa oleifera leaves grow very fast but the seed pods do not grow back every few months like the leaves can do. Moringa trees can make seed pods on one time per year, just like many other plants. Beeing a healing plant it worths to wait a little for the trees to make this seed pods.
Moringa oleifera trees give a huge volume of seed pods during their reproduction months. A normal tree of arount five meters in height can produce thousands of seed pods, yielding countless seeds each year and every year the moringa tree is alive.
Growing Moringa Seeds
The Moringa plant is getting discovered by more and more people. Every day there are new companies and business dealing in moringa. The offering of moringa seeds and moringa powder on the internet went from zero to 1000 at the spead of light the last years. Seeds of the Moringa oleifera tree are cheaply available online. Please read our instructions on where and how to plant moringa seeds before you order any seeds because maybe the environment or weather where you live, is not suitable for growing moringa or germinating the seeds. A tropical or sub tropical environment is the ideal but you could still grow the Moringa plant indoors, greenhouse or personal home, when you take good care of the seed planting and growing process. Moringa seeds germinate well in a room temperature environment. The seeds will grow into plants after around 2 weeks in the ground. Moringa seeds likes it warm and lots of light. You need to take care that you dont over water the seeds because they could rot.
One way to do it is to soak the seeds in water for around twenty four hours. By doing this you will let the seeds to get moisture that the seeds require for sprouting. After the twenty four hour soaking periude, you can remove the seeds and place them in the ground. One cm deep is good enough. Remember to give the seeds some water but not too much, otherwise the seed may rotten. Check the moringa seeds come out of the ground around 2 weeks later. Some seeds will never grow. But the other time i plant 5 seeds and i got six little moringas. Talking about green fingers… or was that a miracle?
Although Moringa can stand freezing temperatures, a good rule to follow for growing Moringa oleifera is keeping the temperatures above 20 Celsius.
Uses for Moringa Seeds
When the Moringa seeds are used for oil extraction, the seeds are harvested and processed straight away. The fresh, soft seeds are broken into pieces and heated with water, and then they are pressed for oil. Much research is being done in this field to get a high amount oil out of the seeds. Still a long road to go to find the right methode for moringa seeds oil pressing.
Moringa seeds can also be harvested for other proposes beside oil. The moringa seeds could be used as food, to purify water or in cultivating further Moringa crops. Moringa seeds are a very welcome in many cultures as a nutritious food. The moringa seeds are full of nutrients, making them as popular as Moringa leaves in lots of meals and recipes.
Cleaning water with moringa seeds
The Moringa seeds cake which remains after the oil has been extracted has proved to be a very effective coagulant for purifying water. The Moringa seeds powder helps remove sediment and bacteria, leaving the water clean and alomost ready to drink.
Water will require different amounts of Moringa seeds powder to purify it, depending on the impurities present. Around 50-150 mg of ground seeds treat one litre of water: as a rule of thumb, powder from one seed or two seeds will be sufficient for one litre of very turbid or two litres of slightly turbid water. Experimenting with small amounts of water in a jar will help you work out the correct amount of seeds powder and the optimal stirring times.
In certain rural areas of Sudan, women already use Moringa seeds to purify water. When collecting water from the river Nile, they place the powdered seeds in a small cloth bag with a thread attached. This is then swirled around in the bucket of turbid water, until the fine particles and bacteria clump together with Moringa seeds powder, sinking and settling to the bottom. For drinking water though, the water needs to be purified further by boiling, filtering through sand or placing it in direct sunlight in a clearbottle for a couple of hours.
