Semi Bantu (64%) consume vegetables more than the other ethnic groups (Table 1).
By ethnic group, nightshade was the second most preferred indigenous vegetable for the Bantu and Semi Bantu, while amaranth and jute mallow were the second most preferred indigenous vegetables for the Sudanese (Table 3).
