A lot of effort has been invested
by the Government of Uganda
to produce enough food for
Uganda’s population and a surplus for
export. However, the indigenous
vegetables, often referred to as
traditional vegetables, have been
underrated in favor of introduced
exotic vegetables (Rubaihayo, 1995).
Hence, the potential of traditional
vegetables has not been exploited.
