The tomato is the edible red berry of the plant Solanum lycopersicum, commonly known as a tomato plant. The species originated in western South America and Central America.
Numerous varieties of the tomato plant are widely grown in Temperate climates across the world, with Greenhouses allowing for the production of tomatoes throughout all seasons of the year. Tomato plants typically grow to 1–3 meters (3–10 ft) in height.
Amaranths; also known as Terere or Mchicha; is a common delicacy in most urban centres in Kenya. Among farmers; Mchicha remains a quick source of cash; mostly due to its short maturity period and high market demand
Terere has been scientifically proven to contain up to 15 per cent protein, carbohydrates; vitamins and a wide range of dietary minerals, including iron, phosphorus and manganese.The high nutritional content and a growing market is not the only benefit an amaranth grain farmer can expect.The venture is also incredibly reliable; as the crop; also popular as a livestock feed, is highly drought-resistant and not prone to most grain ravaging pests and diseases.
Baby corn (or baby sweetcorn) is a cereal grain taken from maize, and is harvested early while the stalks are still small and immature. It typically is eaten whole – cob included – in contrast to mature corn, whose cob is too tough for human consumption. It is eaten both raw and cooked. Baby corn is common in Stir Fry dishes.
Baby corn ears are hand-picked as soon as the corn silks emerge from the ear tips, or a few days after. Corn generally matures very quickly, so the harvest of baby corn must be timed carefully to avoid ending up with more mature corn ears.
Baby corn is consumed worldwide, and can also be fed fresh or ensiled to livestock animals.
Saga or the spider plant (Cleome gynandra L) is an indigenous leafy vegetable, which is widely consumed by the majority of the rural and urban population in Kenya. About 90 % of the rural population in Kenya have small parcels of land and rely on indigenous leafy vegetables for relish. Spider plant is ranked second amongst the top four indigenous leafy vegetables consumed as relish.
The crop grows well during the warm season under irrigation. Spider plant is sensitive to cold and does not grow well when temperatures drop below 15 degrees Celsius. It thrives on sandy loam soils and does not perform well on wet, marshy and heavy clay soils. It requires exposure to sunlight and does not do well in the shade. Prolonged drought hastens flowering thus reducing yields.
Spinach (Spinacia oleracea) is a leafy green flowering plant native to central and western Asia. It is of the order Caryophyllales, family Amaranthaceae, subfamily Chenopodioideae. Its leaves are a common edible vegetable consumed either fresh, or after storage using preservation techniques by canning, freezing, or dehydration. Spinach does best when growing in moist, nitrogen-rich soil.
It may be eaten cooked or raw, and the taste differs considerably; the high oxalate content may be reduced by steaming.Fresh spinach is sold loose, bunched, or packaged fresh in bags. Fresh spinach loses much of its nutritional value with storage of more than a few days.
Managu is a leafy green vegetable common throughout Kenya and nearby countries. The leaves are usually cooked with other vegetables. Although originally quite bitter, the flavor can be improved by letting it rest several days after cooking or by adding fermented milk. Managu is a crop that grows well in a variety of soil types. It is also referred to as African nightshade, although it is entirely different from the poisonous European solanum nigrum and other poisonous nightshade varieties from different regions of the world.
It can grow in a wide range of soils, but it does better in nutrient-rich soil with high levels of organic material. Unlike some other nightshades, the fruit of the African nightshade is not eaten. The vegetable is an excellent source of protein, iron, vitamin A, iodine and zinc. Nightshades are traditionally used as medicinal plants.
Cotton is a soft, fluffy staple fiber that grows in a boll, or protective case, around the seeds of the cotton plants of the genus Gossypium in the mallow family Malvaceae. The fiber is almost pure cellulose. Under natural conditions, the cotton bolls will increase the dispersal of the seeds.
The fiber is most often spun into yarn or thread and used to make a soft, breathable textile.Current estimates for world production are about 25 million tonnes or 110 million bales annually, accounting for 2.5% of the world's arable land. India is the world's largest producer of cotton
Red onions are cultivars of the onion (Allium cepa) with purplish-red skin and white flesh tinged with red.
These onions tend to be medium to large in size and have a sharp flavor and eye-watering qualities.They are often consumed raw (and can be added to salads for color and bite), grilled, or lightly cooked with other foods.Red onions are available throughout the year and are high in flavonoids and fiber.
Growing red onions is as easy as any other type of onion. All onions are biennials, meaning they take two years to complete their life cycle. In the first year, seed grows, forming modified leaves and tiny underground bulbs. In the succeeding year, red onion bulbs mature until they’re ready to harvest. Most gardeners plant onion sets, the second year small red onion bulbs, to hasten the maturation and harvest of the onions.
