Mango trees (Mangifera indica L.) are cultivated in many countries of East, South and West Africa. In these countries, mangoes contribute to farmer family diets as well as serving as a cash crop.

Su voto: Nada


Coffee is a major commodity on the global market. In Africa the crop is grown in many sub-Saharan countries and mainly by small-holder farmers. Although many species of coffee exist, commercial production is based principally on Coffea arabica and Coffea canephora, commonly referred to respectively as Arabica coffee and Robusta coffee. Arabica coffee grows better at higher altitudes, while Robusta coffee is better suited to warmer, more humid lowland environments.
