The following Moringa species are characterized by a massive, swollen, water-storing trunk. Moringa drouhardii is a conspicuous element of the southern Malagasy dry forest. It grows in scattered stands that can number hundreds of individuals, usually on limestone. I found many young trees in gaps in the dry forest in the southeast of the island. In cultivation, M. drouhardii grows extremely fast, surpassing three meters in its first year.Like other moringas in other parts of the world, Moringa drouhardii is used medicinally.

Moringa hildebrandtii, Moringa

Click to see full-size image Moringa hildebrandtii
Family: Moringaceae
Moringa
Origin: Madagascar
Can be used for bonsaiBig tree > 20 ftFull sunRegular waterModerate waterDeciduous

Moringa hildebrandtii is a beautiful tree with a massive, water-storing trunk that can grow to 20 meters tall. This bloated trunk makes Moringa hildebrandtii strongly resemble the baobab trees. The pinnately compound leaves can be up to a meter long, and the leaf rachis and stem tip of young plants is often a distinctive deep red. The small whitish flowers are borne in large sprays.

Moringa tolerate most soil types and grow well in full sun. Water regularly and protect from wind and frost; in cooler climates, they can be grown in warmed greenhouses. Propagate from seed or cuttings.

This 25 foot tall tree is sometimes mistaken for a legume. It has delicate foliage and attractive pale white-yellow fragrant flowers that are borne in loose clusters in the leaf axils. Flowering and fruiting freely and continuously. Grows best on a dry sandy soil. Makes an ideal shade tree with high drought resistance. Possibly one of the most useful trees in the world, it produces long green pods that have been compared to a cross between peanuts and asparagus. The roots are used as a substitute for horseradish and the edible leaves make a highly nutritious vegetable. The roots have also been documented as useful in many folk remedies. The flowers, shoots, and foliage are edible as greens. The name derives from the roots, which taste like horseradish and are used as a substitute. Cattle are particularly fond of them. Young pods are cooked in curries. Seeds, which taste like peanuts when fried, are eaten, but they contain an alkaloid, which limits their use. The unripe pods, known as `susumber' or `drumsticks', are cut up and boiled like beans. The outsides of the pods are extremely hard and woody and impossible to eat; one has to pick them up and eat the sticky pulp inside and `pips' which are lightly hot and delicious. Upon pressing, the seeds yield an oil called ben oil. This nondrying oil is used for oiling machinery, in salad oil, and in soaps. The corky bark yields a gum used in India to print calico (cotton cloth with figured patterns). See article about this tree.

Moringa peregrina, Drumstick tree

Drumstick tree
Origin: Arabia, Red Sea coasts
Big tree > 20 ftFull sunModerate waterPink flowersWhite/off-white flowersFragrantEthnomedical plant.
Plants marked as ethnomedical and/or described as medicinal, are not offered as medicine but rather as ornamentals or plant collectibles.

This native of the Red Sea region is the strangest member of a strange group. When Moringa peregrina seedlings start out, they have broad leaflets and a large tuber. Through many dry seasons, the shoot dies back below ground to the tuber. As the plant gets older, the leaves get longer and longer, but the leaflets get smaller and smaller and more widely spaced. Adult trees produce leaves with a full complement of tiny leaflets, only to drop them as the leaf matures. However, the naked leaf axis remains, giving the tree a wispy look similar to Tamarix or Cercidium microphyllum. The pink zygomorphic flowers are sweetly scented and contrast with the blue leaves.

Moringa stenopetala, Horseradish tree, Haleko

Click to see full-size image Moringa stenopetala
Family: Moringaceae
Horseradish tree, Haleko
Origin: Southwest Africa
Can be used for bonsaiBig tree > 20 ftFull sunModerate waterDry conditionsWhite/off-white flowers

It is an important food plant in southwestern Ethiopia, where it is cultivated as a crop plant. Moringa leaves are eaten almost every day like spinach together with cereal balls. Moringa leaves are outstanding with respect to high contents of essential amino acids, Vitamin A and C. Moringa tolerate most soil types and grow well in full sun. Water regularly and protect from wind and frost; in cooler climates, they can be grown in warmed greenhouses. Propagate from seed or cuttings. Due to its water storage capacity in the bottle shaped stem, M. stenopetala is adapted to semi-arid areas. The tree forms weird shapes of trunk. Can be used for bonsai.
