Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference paperAcademicpeer-review


Attention is drawn to vegetables of limited geographical distribution in Africa. A wealth of information is available in the 2004 PROTA Handbook 2: Vegetables, published simultaneously in English and French. Research gaps are pointed out in the 2005 companion issue Special Products. Distinction is made in several categories, such as species with well-defined vegetable use well covered by extension and research, those deserving more attention, or vegetable species with established or potential other uses such as medicinal or ornamental use.
