Bug on neen leaves
As the scientific name indicates, the neen tree (Azadirachta indica) originates in India. It's reported to have exceptional medicinal properties; so much so, it's spread throughout the world in the last few years. I came by my seedling from the a nursery owned by a person referred to as the "Portuguese." He has a few neen trees already producing seeds and the price is right, about a US dollar per seedling. I only planted one, this one you see in the image.
