In Odisha these plants (about 20-50 ft. high) are abundant. In rural areas almost all have this plant in their yards or gardens. The winter freeze In North America does not make it suitable for outside planting and many of us grow these in pots. The fruits in pots do not grow well. Moringa survive very well in Florida, southern California, and Hawaii. We can make several delicious recipes using the leaves, flowers and fruits.
