    What a shame no one has commented here. I wish I could have such a tree as a speciman plant, but the dictates of our climate don't allow for it. Maybe that is why the lack of interest since most readers here probably hail from similar colder temperate climates.

    It is interesting that this tree or at least a number of varieties of it reside in the areas of Somalia, Ethiopia and Kenya. Though I believe the one most commented on is from Idia/Pakistan area. These African areas supposedly have major food issues from what the News Reports tell us. Of course you need nore than a tree to feed upon, but the number of uses for it are amazing. Especially where water quality is an issue.

    Here's an article from Johns Hopkins Medical School about Moringa oleifera's medicinal, therapeutic, and prophylactic properties.

    I used to travel in Africa for more than a year on business. I believe that Moringa oleifera will bless Africans a lot.
