Not a curse term but to be taken literally.
After 20 months of growing the Moringa Oleifera from seeds and cultivating more cuttings, I finally realize that a slow growing one had her reason(s) for slowing down her height and leaf-production. She was busy beautifying herself for procreation. She was not producing (what I thought were) curly leaves but real buds and today some of them bloomed!
Upon pollination, these blooms with become “drumsticks”, which is cooked in curry while still green or left to turn brown and dry where seeds are collected.
In case you are curious as to what these flowers turn into after pollination ~ pods called “drumsticks”. A photo which I took, while in Singapore, explains how it got its name.
