Second year for this Moringa – now in full flower here in southeast central Texas. I cut it back to 5 feet in the winter so it would fit on the porch out of the cold weather, and it is now up to 10 feet again. I harvest the leaves very regularly and use them in scrambled eggs, salads, anything in which you’d put a slightly spicy herb! New seed pod means more seedlings for next year! A friend and I raise them to help fund Maya children’s gardening activities in schools during our Garden Club’s annual visits to Guatemala.
