The Mziza Farming Club have started harvesting butternut squash from their vegetable gardens. We are selling marketing the crop at the open vegetable market in Lilongwe. The price ranges from MK50-MK80, depending on which vendor we deal with.
Farmers have so far harvest a crop worth MK6,400. Many vendors at the market have asked us where we source the squash, and they are eager to find other scarce vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, sweet onions, and spinach.
