A Moringa Tree FOUND!


Every Friday, my siblings and I went to practice my silat lessons at Zaytuna Elementery School (Sekolah Sri Kenanga). We learn Silat Seni Gayung Malaysia with four other students of the school too. A few months ago, I had just realized that the miracle tree (moringa oleifera) beside the school building and as I promised May 13, GreenMalay and everyone else… I had uploaded pictures taken from my handphone after yesterday’s practice.
Almost two months ago... only 2 fruits...

  1. Ask your mom to add some moringa’s leaves in your ‘telor dadar goreng’, it’ll be a most delicious ‘lauk’. Then eat with hot rice. It used to be my favorite dishes masa kecik2 until now…

  2. That’s exactly what my ‘nenek’ said too… She said that it was her favourite and she always ate it until at one time when moringas are too hard to find in Terengganu. But unfortunately, I do not like ‘telur dadar goreng’ plain or otherwise 🙂

    BTW, thank you for being kind enough to read my blog and post comments too. I hope you shall come read my blog again.

  3. lol.. I didn’t mean to remind you, but I did.. so that’s a good thing, huh??

    n’ways, thanks for the comment, n’ I love your blog!

  4. Dear Aiman,

    Yes! The Moringa tree looks very healthy with flowers and pods (the fruits are called pods). They are good for making curry when they are still green and friable. The young leaves are good for making soup, but I just consume them raw. You can also dry them in room temperature and grind them into powder. You can use the powder as food condiments.
    It is good if you can propagate the tree among your friends.

  10. Waalaikumussalam, Kak Hajar,

    I have seen a lot of moringa trees around Kuala Terengganu. There’s one in Tanjung and another on Jalan Pusara. I cannot remember where else have I seen moringa trees but I guess maybe you should try driving around KT? And I’m sorry but I don’t know where you can find a place where moringa is grown abundantly around Malaysia. I hope you’ll find the seeds you need.

    Wassalam,
    Aiman Amani

    I am really sorry but I have long since moved from the school. While I do have a few moringa trees in my garden, they are still young (being only 3 feet tall) and a long way still from flowering. If you are lucky, at least here in Kuala Lumpur, you may be able to find moringa fruits being sold at the farmer’s market. Perhaps the sellers may have the access to moringa seeds that you need.

  15. Assalamualaikum… May I know the specific location where this tree grows?

    The tree to used to grow at a school my sisters attended which had closed down. I believe the tree had been chopped down since.
