Moringa
"The Green Plant"

Moringa is widely cultivated for its young seed pods and leaves, used as vegetables and for traditional herbal medicine. It is also used for water purification. Although listed as an invasive species in several countries, M. oleifera has not been observed invading intact habitats or displacing native flora, so should be regarded at present as a widely cultivated species with low invasive potential.
