Moringa (Moringa olifera) has made a sweeping movement across the island of Hispaniola through its recognizable market entrance and nutrition improvement crop for those who are subsisting. The plant is super multi-functional, grows in tough climates including drought. Bees abound in its fragrant flowers while the resulting beans inside it’s oddly shaped bean pods have a great cleansing effect when ground and added to dirty, pathogen ridden water.
