Moringa is a small tree with many valuable properties. It grows fast and it continues to grow if cut back. The leaves can be cooked as a green vegetable or used for animal fodder. It is a legume and improves soil fertility. It also produces seed pods that make a delicious vegetable when young.

However, the seeds are also very valuable. When crushed, the seed kernels produce a good cooking oil and the paste makes a good animal food. The crushed seed kernels can also be used to clean water. When a very small amount of crushed kernel paste is mixed with water, it causes any particles and diseases in the water to form clumps, which quickly sink to the bottom. The water can be filtered through a cloth and is then safer to drink.
