Does anyone have experience growing any varieties of Moringa other than oleifera? I cannot seem to find seeds of any other variety online and wanted to try experimenting with hybridizing. Anybody know a source with additional species?

I am still in the research phase of my Moringa fascination, but there is another Moringa species I have found online.
It grows in Africa and is cultivated in Ethiopia.

Here's a source of Moringa stenopetala: the Cabbage Tree

Good luck!

Thanks! I've grown oleifera this season and it's done really well. I'm going to be experimenting with different techniques for over-wintering them in a temperate climate and was curious what I could do with other varieties.
