Last year we Planted a few Pawpaw trees and already that's about 12 months later and they are in fruit
and on top of the quick growing time they also have a great market value. pawpaw trees can be grown from seeds taking from the fresh fruit and they grow very easily if the weather is warm.

Make money small scale Farming in Botswana
The first step to take when farming with making money in view is to consider your markets that you will be supplying. Because it is of no value to grow thousands of hectares of fresh produce if you don’t have a market, so take a look at the market before you start planting.
1 super market’s (Tomatoes carrots Cabbages Green peppers) go talk to all manages of the shops and find out what they wish to source locally.
2 local markets (spinach rape tomatoes butter nut cabbages)
3 safari lodges (much the same as super markets but of high quality)
Then you want to consider the quantity.
For example super markets are not interested in ten bags of tomatoes they will be looking for twenty bags a week so always keep in mind you need to have Consistency - quantity and quality
Well that’s all for part one for questions please leave a comment
