Drought Resistant Tree

14 02 2012

[1] Moringa is a hardy, drought resistant tree, whose leaves are believed to be one of the world’s most nutritious vegetables. According to Trees for Life (www.treesforlife.org), gram for gram, dried moringa oleifera leaves contain 10.5X the amount of Vitamin A as carrots, 16.5X the calcium of milk, 15X the potassium of bananas, 8.5X the amount of protein in yogurt, and half as much Vitamin C as an orange.
