Here is a harvest of some fresh moringa branches. With about a dozen or so trees, we can pick some daily rather than have to try to preserve them, although we still want to learn to dry them and pulverize them into powder to store for winter use in foods.
They are easily snapped right off the trunks, or cut with a small knife. The fibrous stems are inedible, but are a nutritious mulch. We discard them by placing them around the bases of other plants needing fertilization.
