Moringa Seeds: Moringa Oleifera Seeds PKM1

Are you looking for a source of high quality Moringa seeds? Are you wanting to experience growing Moringa for yourself? That’s great! We are so glad you found us! We will strive to meet and exceed your expectations! 

Moringa is incredibly fun and satisfying to plant as it’s a fast growing tree that produces remarkably healthy leaves and seed pods. We had trees reach 13+ feet high last year when planted from seed earlier the same year!

The 100 count of Moringa seeds come in a resealable, ziplock, foil package while the 10 count comes in a sealed, single use, foil pack.

Moringa Oleifera Seed Details

We carry both standard Moringa Oleifera seeds and the PKM1 variety of Moringa seeds. We have planted both seed types and use PKM1 seeds almost exclusively now because of the tremendous benefits.

The PKM1 hybrid variety of Moringa oleifera seeds were developed at Periyakulam Horticultural College and Research Institute, Tamil Nadu. PKM1 seeds produce the largest yields of leaves and seed pods in the shortest period of time. And don’t worry they have the same nutritional profile as the leaves and seed pods of the standard Moringa oleifera seeds.

Here are some details on what to expect when you plant the PKM1* variety of Moringa seeds.

  • Increased leaf production and more uniform tree to tree growth
  • Flowering starts within 90-100 days after planting and happens twice per year (in sub-tropical / tropical climate)
  • Early fruit-bearing with seed pods reaching edible maturity within 65 days of flowering
  • High yield of seed pods with seed pods reaching a length of 2.5 – 3.0 ft with up to 30 seeds/per pod
  • Greater uniformity of seedpod length and texture
  • Seeds contain 38 to 42 % of oil
  • Seedpods have a long shelf life in room temperature 5 to 7 days

Planting Instructions

  • Plant Moringa in an area that gets as much sun as possible. Moringa loves full sun and plenty of heat! It can handle temperature up to 120 F!
  • Moringa must be planted in well draining soil as water logged soil can quickly kill a Moringa tree from root rot.
  • Seeds should be planted 0.5 – 1.0″ below the soil. Keep the soil moist but not saturated. Too much moisture will rot the seed.
  • Germination can take 5 day – 21 days depending on soil temperatures. Germination rates can be over 85% when conditions are ideal.
  • Water every other day for the first month or two and then water less frequently. Moringa is draught tolerant and grows well with a hands off approach.

Additional Notes:

This is a tropical / subtropical tree so if you live in a region that experiences freezing temperatures you have two options.

  1. Grow your Moringa in a pot and overwinter inside. Grow in the deepest pot you can find to accommodate the tap root growth.
  2. Cut your Moringa down close to ground level and insulate with straw to keep the roots from freezing. (This only works if you have infrequent freezes with otherwise mild winter temps).

A frost will cause a young Moringa tree to die back to the roots and a freeze will kill the tree completely if unprotected.

Moringa really starts to grow incredibly fast when the average temperature is above 70 deg. F! We have seen trees grow over 2 feet per month in July – October!

Again, in colder climates keep the trees inside in the winter and enjoy the rapid growth through the summer or alternatively just grow Moringa as an annual each year and enjoy the fresh leaves.

Moringa Seed Add-Ons:

Mycorrhizae Beneficial Fungi

Consider adding the optional small or large pack of Mycorrhizae beneficial fungi to your order. Use the beneficial fungi for healthier, faster growing and more resistant Moringa. The beneficial fungi create a symbiotic relationship with plant roots to increase water and nutrient uptake. This plant yields can remain high with a decrease in watering and fertilizing.

Adding the small pack to your order provides you enough mycorrhizae for planting 10 Moringa seeds and the large pack is enough for planting 100 seeds. Use up to 0.5 tsp sprinkled into each planting site so that the fungi will be in contact with the bottom side of the seeds.

The large pack of mycorrhizae comes in a resealable foil bag. The small pack comes in a small foil pouch that is meant for single use.

If you are looking for the fastest way to enjoy leaves and seed pods (seed pod production will generally only be possible in the southern USA) from your Moringa tree consider buying a Moringa Root. Learn more about the incredible Moringa roots and watch a video on planting the root stock here: Moringa Root Stock. You will be amazed!

    5 out of 5 Fast Shipping. Fast Germination. Strong, Hearty Seedlings.

    This is my first experience with growing moringa. I watched all the healthy leaf youtube videos and wanted to support their family and grow my own.

    I placed my order Sunday and received it Wednesday (to AZ), which is pretty fast! Nicely packaged in sealed mylar pouches with ziplock closure, so you can store easily. I ordered the 100 pack and received 105 seeds in the pack. I started all 105 seeds in recycled plastic trays that were originally apple containers from Costco that i poked a hole at the bottom for drainage.

    I first had them outside, but beginning of March nighttime lows were in the 50s. I read online that they like 70-90 degree temps to germinate, so I brought them inside and place the tray on top of my mini refrigerator to keep them warm, like a heating mat. This worked within a day. Within 10 days, I saw 80 out of 105 growing. There might be more that sprout, but I’m only on day 10. They are strong little seedlings. Can’t wait to watch them grow!

    They were shipped and received in a timely manner (4 days). I look forward to starting my seeds indoors and when the weather is warm enough plant them outside.

    Not sure how to review as I have not planted the seeds. Wish that instructions would have been included with my order.

      Judy,

      Thanks so much for the feedback. Will definitely be including an insert in the seed packages moving forward! In general plant 1/2 – 1″ deep, keep the soil moist but don’t soak. The seeds will germinate in 5 days – 2 weeks if the ground is warm (think middle of summer) or if you are on a heat mat. Otherwise expect to wait up to 2-3 weeks for seedlings to emerge. If the soil is too cold germination will be slow with low yields. You can directly plant into the ground or pot as needed. Make sure the soil is well draining. If not, add some sand to the planting site. Moringa loves composted cow manure or better yet composted chicken manure. Add all the way up to 40% composted manure to the planting site for the highest leaf yield possible. This isn’t required but a best practice. Also, best practice would be to add mycorrhizae beneficial fungi to the planting site. Not required but helps with increased nutrient and water uptake. Hope this helps and thanks again for the order!
