(Horseradish tree; Drumstick tree) Small tree native to India and Arabia and widely cultivated throughout the tropics. Almost every part of this tree is used for food. Roots are used like horseradish, and the leaves are eaten as greens, in curries, pickles and as seasoning, and the large immature seedpods, called "drumstocks", are boiled and eaten in South Asia . In the West, moringa has become popular "superfood" for its extraordinary nutritional content and for its powerful anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and tissue-protective properties. It is a rich source of vitamins, minerals and amino acids. It helps to protect the brain, the liver and the cardiovascular system. While it is a tropical tree, it can withstand a little frost, and does well in containers if the tap root is pruned.
