A couple of weeks after pruning and there are 5cm shoots of new growth already.
A really amazing tree.
This is my pruned moringa, down to about 2m from nearly 5m.
I planted this tree as a small seedling about 2 years ago. It grew very
slowly at first and then just took off.
Think this one is 3 years old Cheryl. They grow very quickly in summer but need water
Not even my trunks are as thick as your branches, WOW, looks like its a long term project
Thanks Doug good that your tree branches from near the base, lots more spots for new growth. Have you ever grown seedlings from the seed ?
Good cut back, I believe the whole tree can be eaten, but I am not sure how you would use the branches. The big pieces can be grown as cuttings if you know what to do.
