Moringa: PKM 1
Moringa is a very popular tropical fast growing tree up to 15 m in height. The young pods can be eaten and the leaves are an excellent source of calcium, vitamins, minerals and protein. The tree has a loose crown and can also be used for a hedge, living fence or windbreak. It coppices well to stimulate leaf production. Spacing is dependent on the purpose of the trees. Trees for leaf production can be spaced anywhere from 10cm to 1m apart depending on how often the trees are coppiced. Trees for seed production can be space 3-5m apart between trees and rows.
