About Moringa Stenopetala
This Moringa is the African variety. It is native to Ethiopia and Kenya. The tree develops into a swollen bottle trunk. A great tree that grows much slower than its slender trunked Indian relative but will not produce pods quickly.
Stenopetala will need about three years to become mature when grown from seed. Stenopetala also provides the health and nutritional benefits of M. oleifera.
Moringa oleifera produces pods often in less than a year! The M. stenopetala is a slightly larger leafed tree. The leaves are less bitter in flavor. They are not as cold tolerant as M oleifera. M. stenopetala are reported to be more drought tolerant than M. oleifera
We will grow and explore several Moringa cultivars and species. Once we have more information on them we will gladly provide you with more details.
Moringa stenopetala updates
Update: 06/12/13 Moringa Stenopetala so far has been a disappointment! Only three seedlings have germinated out of 200. We had birds attack the seed tray. Mostly my fault. Had no idea the birds loved them so much.
They have grown so little it's ridiculous. We are going to try again and use a more coarse mix that is even faster draining to see if it makes a difference. Pictures of the little runts soon! So far we see no difference in the leaf size. M. stenopetala is 10 inches tall and our M. oleifera are almost five - six feet tall over approximately the same six month period.
Update: 08/15/13 Those little runts are doing much better. Changed the potting soil to a coarse more sandy mix. They are for sure slower than Moringa oleifera but looking great and still much smaller.
Update: 09/01/13 We are feeling more confident about these Moringa stenopetala trees and you should consider growing them as well!
Update: 09/05/13 Beginning to see faster growth and yes larger leaves on the Moringa stenopetala seedlings.This is the slower growing African Moringa. More drought tolerant but not as cold tolerant!
Update: 09/17/13 Expecting to have seed available for sale of Moringa stenopetala by Oct 1, 2013
Update: 10/30/13 Seed available for all three varieties of Moringa trees. Moringa stenopetala doing much better and looking bushy but only a few inches taller. Swelling at base of trunk quite pronounced now!
Update: 03/23/14 Moringa stenopetala has had mixed results with germination. Some purchasers have reported very good germination and others had very little or none. We always send fresh seeds but can not guarantee germination.

The most desired variety of Moringa Olefiera (PKM-1) is now here at Bestmoringatrees.com
PKM-I Cultivar - These seeds are a new cultivar grown in India that produce pods within 7 months and thus can be grown as an annual in parts of the USA too cold for regular Moringa. This variety is still very rare in the USA and easily fruits in a 7 gal container.
PKM-1 is a hybrid that is able to withstand drought and produces long, fleshy pods of the highest quality. This cultivar grows much bushier and produces more leaves and pods than common Moringa Oleifera It is also reported to be more nutrient rich. PKM-1 is a perennial tree but it is very often grown in cooler climates as an annual.
The number one choice for commercial production. *PKM-1 can produce as many as 400 pods (drumsticks) per tree! *PKM-1 is the choice for serious moringa farming and maximum yields in the shortest period of time. Pods are ready to eat after just 65 days. *PKM-1 was developed at the Horticultural College and Research Institute, *Periyakulam, in Tamil Nadu of South India.
Taste tests conducted in Africa between (1) Moringa Stenopetala, (2) Common Moringa Oleifera and (3) PKM-1 hybrid confirmed that PKM-1 had a better taste than (1) and (2)
We are working on obtaining seed of the *PKM-2 cultivar, that is reported to grow with a more horizontal branching pattern. *PKM-2 Produces larger pods with less seeds and contains a less fleshy pod.
