Project Information

Summary:

Note to readers, attached is the complete report for FNE02-417.

The results from this project leads us to believe that more African vegetable varieties should be tested in the future. The sales in the niche markets in Washington D.C. were steady and we were not able to meet the demands for the products. The next step would be to try additional crops and determine if they are compatible to our climate.
