Wild fruits: Adding value

37,000 farmers in Kenya's drylands are increasing their incomes from juice, jam and wine extracted from edible wild fruits. Products from baobab, tamarindus indica and vitex payos tree species are now being sold in supermarkets after receiving quality certification from Kenya’s Bureau of Standards.
