What to plant? (Apr - Jun)

Typical second quarter vegetables include:

  1. Broccoli
  2. Cauliflower
  3. Lettuce
  4. Green Pepper
  5. Tomato
  6. Beetroot
  7. Carrot
  8. Cabbage
  9. Baby Marrow
  10. Butternet

The first 5 vegetables are expected to be in high production which will possibly lead to an oversupply (low prices).

Consult your regional marketing/development officer for advice on vegetables that will offer high profit margins during this period.
