Moringa “Miracle” Tree
Miracle tree indeed – Moringa is said to be one of the most nutritious plants on the market. Moringa powder is becoming increasingly popular online for its health benefits including protein, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and much more – so why not make your own? The leaves of this tree are the main attraction, however the seeds and even the roots are edible as well. Eat the leaves fresh off the tree or dry them out to make them last longer (easily turn dried leaves into Moringa powder using a food processor).
The Moringa tree is an extremely fast grower, being able to put on 6-8 feet of growth in one growing season. They are frost sensitive, so treating them as a perennial or putting them in a container is recommended. Leaves may be harvested before the first frost and the trunk may be cut down to the ground so that the tree will re-establish itself in the spring. Pruning is key for this plant to ensure a large canopy and plentiful leaves to harvest.

We’re so sorry… but due to agricultural restrictions we cannot ship any plants outside of the United States, or to the states of California, Hawaii and Alaska. Also, citrus trees cannot be shipped outside of the state of Florida.
Unpacking Your Plants Guide: Prior to receiving our plants, please click this link to read our Unpacking Your Plants Guide to get to know the steps to keeping your plant healthy after receiving it.
We do NOT ship bare root: Our trees are shipped in the same exact containers they are grown in, for the most healthy transition. The plants are watered well before they are packed and wrapped in a shipping bag to ensure they stay moist during transit. It’s as if you came and picked them up right from our nursery yourself!
Why do we not offer free shipping? At Just Fruits, we price all of our plants online exactly as we do in the nursery. Therefore, the shipping cost is simply what it costs for us to get your order from the nursery to you. Many competitors may increase the plants’ prices in order to hide shipping costs… we do not do that. We want our customers to see exactly what the plant costs are, separate from what the shipping costs are. That way if you decided to come visit the nursery to pick up your plants instead, you would know how much you save in shipping.
Weather Watching: We now ship all year round! However, we do watch for extreme weather. If there is extremely cold or hot weather expected around your shipment date and on your path of shipment, we will contact you and notify you that we plan to hold the shipment for the next possible shipping date with better conditions. If you ask us to still ship it, through the conditions, we will not be responsible for any damage caused to the plant & UPS will not refund any claims. We love our plants, and do not want to see them die, so we would rather wait until it’s the right time to ship it, than risk losing a plant in transit.
