Yeah, this is the one I meant then... I did some research, the 'white mulberry' as shown on wikipaedia looks unlike the tree I was looking at. yet the shatoot does. You got yours from B steve? I need to be getting me one of them.

Steve , I could be wrong but I think your miss-reading postage costs ,, I had two plant BOXES each contained several plants , delivered to Sydney for ??? I don't remember the xact price but it was CHEAP.
I do remember the price I saved on the plants compared to our local nursery meant I saved a substantial amount,,,HMMMM .
Best I go check.

I put 8 trees on an order ,, added post code 3000 and it came back $44.52 postage. less than $6 per plant.
As I said ,, they post in boxes ,, so play with the order until you can see how many plants of what you want fills one box ( price change will be the indicator).
Cheers

read in the west oz paper today, moringa is being trialled as a biodiesel feed stock up canarvon way, on land that is not farmable. 4 times the oil per square of land as corn etc....

I like the not using farmland for it all :)

Ben oil,,,from Moringa seeds has a lot of excellent properties,,,takes a LONG time to go rancid ,oil is very high quailty , used by watch makers and just for cooking and oil-lamps,,,

I guess the BEST bit is that it can supply fodder , human food and now perhaps bio diesel all from land almost useless for anything else AHHH forgot,,a carbon sink as well... Long way to go before a being a proven resource for bio-diesel,,,but sure looking good.
Maybe then other food crops can find their way back to empty human stomach's instead of diesel/petrol tanks of the better off.

Chappo, maybe we should use the other food crops for biodiesel and save the moringa for eating - it is the best food known to man, right ? Surely it's a waste to use it as biodiesel :wink:

I have 4 little moringa seedlings now! I planted from seed and they came up a while back. I moved them into 6" pots and they are still living in the nursery bed in the AP system till I decide where to plant them in the ground.

Any recommendations about what type of location they will thrive in in a humid sub tropical climate with sandy soil? I can provide drip irrigation for them. I was wondering if they want full sun or if partial shade is better? How much cold protection should I provide? And finally, if they can provide so much nutrients, how much fertilization do they need?

Steem,,, It's only the seed oil,,commonly known as Ben-oil that is being used for diesel,,the leaves are the main thing used for food.In this case you get your oil and eat it too:)

"Best foodknown to man"?? Iimagine "the best" is a relative term,,,forme it would be a fresh Tassie crayfish morney,,,fresh Sydney rock oysters or a pepper garlic gravey over a 4cm thick
Wagyu scotch fillet. Unfortunately the starving in Africa and Asia do not seem tohave those options offered on their menu selection.
Millions of people have been helped and tens of thousands are still alive thanks to the Moringa tree,,,read around a little,you may just learn something.
:lol:

Here is one for the plant thread list.

They are not in the AP system, well I'm trying to get a few cuttings to take in the AP system but so far pretty poor luck.

I have a line of moringa trees planted on one section of the property line, hoping for an edible hedge. If I can get more of the cuttings going I'll expand it all along the property line.

Right now I have about 5 trees going. Started them in pots some time in the spring or early summer. Now they are all over 6 feet tall and I've been lopping the tops off at about the extent of my reach every few weeks.
