Promising vegetables for Central Province

The potential for vegetable production in the Central province is yet to be fully recognized. An agronomic study shows that open pollinated vegetables like tomato, French bean and capsicum can grow well in the lowland areas where as in the high altitudes, scientists have noted encouraging performances by English cabbage, broccoli and carrots. For mid altitudes, capcsicum is looking promising while evaluations for tomato and broccoli are still in progress.
