Other Names: Moong dal, Munggo, Green gram, Lu tou, Look dou, Moyashi-mame

Mung beans remain viable for a number of years and they germinate quite readily. For sprouts, simply keep damp and warm (15C 20C) for a few days and they will germinate and grow a few cm long. To cultivate the plant sow in damp soil 2 to 3 cm deep, they should germinate within a few days and will be ready to harvest in 3 to 4 months.

Naranjilla image Naranjilla

Botanical Name: Solanum quitoense
Other Names: Naranja, Lulo

The naranjilla can be propagated by air-layering or by cuttings of mature wood. In Latin America, it is commonly grown from seeds which must first be spread out in the shade to ferment slightly to eliminate the mucilage, then washed, air-dried, and dusted with fungicide.

Neem image Neem

Botanical Name: Azadiracta indica, Melia azadirachta
Other Names: Azad Dirakht, Kharolimdo, Limdo, Margosa tree, Neeb, Nim, Nimba, Vempu, Kohomba, Paraiso

Neem is grown from seed which remain viable for about 30 days after removal from the plant. It grows relativily easily in its native India but it is notoriously difficult to grow in the UK. Ideal conditions are warmth and lots of sunlight.

Nutmeg image Nutmeg

Botanical Name: Myristica fragrans
Other Names: Jaiphal, Mace, Macis, Muscadier, Muskatbaum, Myristica, Noz moscada, Nux moschata, Muskot.

When grown from seed, they should be planted singly in pots, and transplanted when 8 to 10 inches high. The trees will begin to bear in 7 to 9 years. Nutmegs are dioecious so both sexes should be planted. One male is sufficient to pollinate ten to twelve females.
