Immediately after harvesting the leaves, we transported them to our drying area. We harvested the leaves in the morning so we have plenty of time to sort and clean the leaves. Our workers then wash the leaves in water with salt solution to get rid of insects, dust, and dirt.
|Air-drying the moringa leaves. We hang the leaves to dry in our drying area protected from sunlight, dust and pests.|
|Day 2 air drying. We hang them in net bags so that it is easier to remove the leaves off the stems.|
