The moringa market is booming in Niger. While experts are working to determine its real place in the country's economy, no reliable statistics exist to date on this much-coveted commodity consumed by the Nigerien population. A food and therapeutic plant, moringa is more than just leaves - it is also called the miracle plant. In Niger, there is no specific season for its production. Even if there are some peak periods for its consumption such as Ramadan, moringa is produced all year round. In the winter period, production increases in the areas of Maradi, Tilabéri, and Dosso where irrigation is easier thanks to rainwater. However, during this same period, as its price is at its lowest, producers pre-cook the leaves and dry them for domestic and foreign markets, particularly Nigeria.
