Some tips to grow drumstick

Drumstick is a very useful vegetable and widely used in South Indian food preparations, especially SAMBAR - the dish served as first course in South Indian Meals.
Growing drumstick is a very easy task. It grows into a tree, and can be trimmed at frequent intervals. The branch, when planted, gives rise to a new tree, so its really easy to create new drumstick plants very quickly. Initially, the new branch will appear to dry. Within a few days, however, beautiful new green leaves sprout.
Within six months, you will find hundreds of drum sticks swaying nicely from the tree. These days, when a single drum stick is selling @ five rupees, it makes sense to grow this nice tree. The leaves too are a rich source of nutrients and can be added to any dish. They are a bit pungent, so its better to fry it before adding it to any other dish.
