#TECHNOTIPS: Malunggay

malunggay technotipsAll mothers know that moringa, locally known as malunggay, is the go-to supplement for nursing, but did you know that it also offers many health benefits to your entire family? This humble plant is bursting with nutrients and there’s no reason not to include it in any dish—sweet or savory.

Why not start making space for a malunggay tree in your yards? You can get your neighbors’ help to grow this plant on common grounds such as roadsides, where you can all share the pods for several months, too!

The easiest and fastest way to start a malunggay tree is from branch cuttings. Even branches used as fence posts often take root and grow into full-sized trees. But make sure to choose a healthy, mature tree from which to take your cuttings. If possible, take from trees which bear the largest number of pods and the best-tasting ones. It is always better to take cuttings from several different trees rather than just one. This way, if a disease or pest strikes, some of your trees will have a better chance of surviving.
