Moringa Seed Bank Catalog

Our new seed bank catalog is still under construction and all features may not be fully operational. 

 

Categories and Lot Numbers

Our moringa seeds are categorized in this catalog section by species and variety and then by seed source (location grown).   Within each species-variety category seeds available in the seed bank are listed by lot numbers hyperlinked to the data sheet for the seed lot. The format of our lot numbers begins with a field coding for the species, followed by the country source/supplier code field and a final numeric code indicating the shipment number from the supplier. Each of these fields are separated by dashes.   If there is more than one supplier from a given country  the supplier code will end in a suffix code in parenthesis to identify the specific supplier in that country.  For example, the lot number MO-IND(e)-04 identifies the seed lot as the fourth shipment of Moringa oleifera (MO) from India (IND), supplier “e”.

Seed Lot Data Sheets

More detailed location information on the location of the source is listed in the seed lot data sheets.  The data sheets also provide additional information about the dates of acquisition, harvest, organic certification and average seed weight.  As other data about the growth and performance of trees grown from the seed lot becomes available it may be entered on the data sheet.

Seed Availability

Please check our store listings for the lot number(s) of interest to obtain the most current inventory information.  Our listings for our seed products will be updated frequently but may not be current.  Seed inventories are subject to rapid change and some of the seed lots listed here may depleted from our on-site seed bank before our website and online store listings are updated.    If you need to confirm availability please contact us.

Small inventories of most seed lots will be kept in a secure off-site repository.   We may be able to retrieve out of stock seeds from the off-site repository for critical research purposes but access to the remote repository is infrequent and requires special arrangements.  Seeds are not be retrieved from the repository for routine sales.

Germination Data

Most of our seed lots are tested for viability before being offered for sale.   Germination data, usually from only our most recent testing is presented in the seed lot data sheets. Additional tests may have been conducted before the most recent test. Data from these prior tests may be available; please contact us if this is of interest.  The small size of some seed lots and other constraints limit our testing to small numbers of seeds so our germination results may not be reproducible.

Low or zero germination rates were found with some seed lots, particularly the rarer African species. These seeds may germinate under other test conditions or be non-viable.

If no germination data is shown on a lot data sheet testing may be in progress or there is an insufficient amount of seeds left in the inventory to conduct testing.

 

Selecting Seed Lots for Purchase

Seed lot description information found on the data sheets listed below is the most detailed that we offer on the website.  We suggest browsing through this section making a list of the lot numbers you may be interested in before going into our store section, which does not have detailed information on the seed lots.  This will reduce the time and tedium of switching back and fourth between the catalog and store sections of the website.

Within the store section moringa seeds are arranged by categories and offered for sale by lot number.  We are building links between this catalog and the store categories and products listings but these may not be currently operational.
