Abstract :

Botswana harbors a rich floral diversity of wild fruit plants which have served as mainstay sources
of nutrition and medicines for many years. The majority of wild fruits of eastern Botswana have served as
sources of nutrition for many years. Some of them have gained immense popularity that they form integral
parts of many local hotel menus. Wild fruits trees of Botswana if properly exploited can ensure food security
for both rural and urban dwellers. Today wild fruits still represent some of the commodities sold by both local
shops and street vendors. This paper provides an inventory of edible fruit plants of eastern Botswana.
