S.K. Boateng, E. Adu Yeboah and J.Y. Amponsah

Abstract:
Edible wild fruits were collected from the forest vegetation and in different land use systems in the Volta Region of Ghana. Collection and study were done during the latter part of the dry season in 2005. Interviews and group discussions were some of the methods used to get information on the edible wild fruits. Nine accessions were collected which were of different species. Most of the fruit trees were either found in fallow lands or in home gardens. Majority of the fruit trees were of medium size. Locations of edible indigenous fruit plants from which fruits were collected are provided.
