|Jeff Price||Dec 24, 2012||Thought you would like to know that there is a chapter about this plant in "Lost Crops of Africa, volume II - Vegetables". This is a publication by the National Academy of Sciences/National Research Center. We are interested in unusual tropical crops.
Thanks for the reference, Jeff.
