    Default In search of Moringa oleifera

    I need to purchase Moringa oleifera tree starts/cuttings and leafy branches. It also goes by the name of "la libertad" or "palo de aceite" here in the DR. Please contact me if you have some.

    I can see it here all over on the roadside here in La Vega. I had brought some good variety seeds from India and gave it to my friend to grow it here. But failed to follow with him and do not know what he did with that.

    Nin is Neam tree and it is Azadirachta indica. Yes it is good mosquito repellent and has anti-microbial properties. It cannot be used as cattle feed because it is highly bitter. It is used as bio - pesticide and kernel cake as manure.

    Whereas Moringa is Drumstick and here they call as Libertad. It has stick - like pod. The pods and leaves are highly nutritious.

    Lol! First I was thinking "Moringa" is yet another Sanky somebody is looking for or something to eat

    But now I got! And sorry to ask that in your thread... but does somebody can tell me where I could purchase "Niem-Trees" here in the DR? A little bigger than seed size, though!

    Thanks

    You mean neem trees. I do not know if anyone sell those. But it is very easy to raise from seeds. But the seeds has to be fresh. Now it is the right time to collect the seeds. When you pass any neem tree stop and look for fruits on the ground and plant them in nursery bags. It will easily germinate.

    Planting them at the orphanage is a brilliant idea. Moringa provides an easy solution to an age old problem.
