Chaya in Ethiopia

Is anyone aware of Chaya being cultivated in Ethiopia? I’m looking to source some cuttings for a partner there.

Hi Christopher, One of our intern alumni was in Ethiopia several years ago and said that they had it in the southwest of the country. They also reported that It won’t do well in highland areas, but really seems to like the hot lowlands. The ECHO East Africa Impact Center may have some contacts in Ethiopia that could help.

I’ve had Chaya growing VERY successfully at 700m in subtropical highlands
