Abstract: Eleven indigenous tropical vegetables studied included amaranth, pigeon pea, winged bean, Ceylon spinach, taro, edible hibiscus, breadfruit, swamp cabbage, sweetpotato, cassava, and Moringa. The findings suggested that these could supply more of the five essential nutrients than were available from the commonly eaten temperate-zone vegetables tested.
