Burke, A. 2009. Ximenia survey in West Caprivi


Description:

Ximenia survey in West Caprivi.

Summary / Notes:

The kernel of sour plum (Ximenia americana and X. caffra) yields a seed oil which used commercially for cosmetic purposes. For several years local communities in the Eenhana area, North Central Namibia, have been harvesting Ximenia fruits, cleaning and cracking the seeds and sold these to a central agent in Windhoek for export to France. Based on the success of this harvesting project in North Central, and the fact that the demand from Europe outstrips supply, IRDNC has been asked to investigate the feasibility of extending the harvesting network to West Caprivi and Kunene region.
