1. Are moringa flowers edible?

MORINGA FLOWERYes, moringa flowers are edible. Usually after 8 to 12 months of planting, the moringa tree begins to flower and continues all year round. The flowers can be eaten or used to make a tea. The flowers provide good amounts of calcium and potassium. Moringa flowers also provide a year-round source of nectar for bees, although some have claimed that honeybees do not gather nectar from moringa.
