Moringa

Climate zone: TropicalDry – Temperate – Continental – Polar

The moringa tree (Moringa oleifera) which grows in many tropical and subtropical regions of the world is known for various purposes. While its fruit pods – also known as drumsticks – are edible, its roots and leaves can be turned into moringa powder and oil can be derived from its seeds. The products are popular in the health and superfood sector as they are praised for their medicinal properties and nutritional value.

Those benefits make the moringa tree an excellent plant for agroforestry systems. It grows well in alley cropping, fosters food security and nutrition, and provides a valuable income source for farmers.
