Good evening my fellow hivers,
When I went to our garden this morning I saw a very tasty vegetable. Unfortunately the English name could not be found here. As you know, many foods like vegetables, fruits, herbs, potatoes and nuts have different flavors. We have an amazing food technology that prepares them in different ways and in different flavors. If we get used to using them, we will be able to regain a healthy nation. We must preserve the knowledge we lose and pass it on to future generations.
Tibbatu can be introduced as an expensive vegetable in the market. We in the village can get these for free. This plant thrives in the garden and surroundings. No need to bother with weirdness. Many housewives know how to prepare this tibbatu in different ways and add it to their diet.
Drought-prone tibbatu are more widespread in the dry zone. But it grows well and bears fruit in the lowland wet zone as well as in the dry and inter-climatic zones. But it is the most suitable crop for the dry zone. A special feature is the ability to plant this crop at any time of the year. Such planting is best done during the rainy season.
Tibbatu is a perennial crop. Therefore, a well-maintained tree can be harvested for several years. This crop can be maintained as a single crop and earn a good income. Cultivation can also be maintained as a mixed crop with other crops. If space allows, the plant will grow well with spreading leaves. This cultivation can be done successfully in other strips along with other crops. It is better to plant two such trees, even in a garden with limited space. The reason for this is to give more fruit well without paying too much attention. It also gives clusters of white flowers and fruits that form at the ends of the branches in clusters.
The nutritional value as well as the medicinal value of Tibbatu is very important. Among the chemical constituents it contains are solanine which are beneficial to the body. It is said that eating kills coughs, sneezes, sores and bile and worms.
Tibbatu, which used to be cultivated as chena, is now cultivated as a single crop because of its economic benefits. Tibbatu has to pay more in the market because of its medicinal and nutritional value.
