Summary: The main objective of this study was to evaluate the ability of growth and biomass yield of introduced Moringa accessions in Quang Tri province. A total of eight accessions were used: four accessions from World Vegetable Center, namely VI048687, VI047492, VI048590, VI048718; two accessions, i.e, PKM-1 and Philippines local accession supplied by The University of the Philippines, one Thailand local accession and one Vietnam local accession (control) provided by Fruit and Vegetable Research Institute (Vietnam). The results showed that the control and PKM–1 had good growth and development: survival rate over 78 %, first harvesting time from 90 to 93 days and biomass yield above 356.43 g/plant (PKM–1). These accessions were suitable for local conditions. The survival rate of VI047492 and VI048687 was low, only 34.5 and 40.0 %, respectively. However, their first harvesting was on the 95th day, and biomass yield was 261.0–283.5 g/plant. These two accessions could be used for breeding and cultivation under local conditions.
