Shea nut seedlings

Hi, I need a reliable source of Shea nut seedlings for planting in Ghana.
Happy to buy from any country in Africa, preferably West Africa due to proximity.

Cheers

Dear Kwame,

Are you anywhere near Tamale? Once while visiting the Savanna Agricultural Research Institute (SARI) I passed through Tamale and visited a business in town that was processing thousands of Shea nuts through a women’s cooperative. Maybe someone at SARI can point you in the right direction? My host worked for Catholic Relief Services. They may also be provide a lead for you.

Thanks Jeffrey, I’m not in Ghana at the moment, but I will get someone on the ground to follow up on this lead. Once again much appreciated.

Cheers

Kwame
