Why there aren't more fruits and Veggies???
I have been thinking about this since MiskitoAlan said he had a farm with Okras! So do we really have to have a farm to get a decent variety of Fruits and Green Veggies? Nicaragua has a lot of land that is fertile and can be easily cultivated. Egypt, as an example, has probably 50% of the cultivable land that Nicaragua has, and about 14x the population. Yet there is tons of different fruits and greens. So is it: 1. The number of Cattle ranches using lands that would otherwise grow fruits and veggies 2. Lack of resources (Human and Financial) to cultivate on large scale 3. Lack of a market (domestic and export) for such fruits and Veggies 4. Meat eating Culture? which contributes to 3 above 5. Too much exports and nothing is left in the country????
