    Indigenous fruits and vegetables are associated with multiple nutritional and health benefits. Unfortunately, the multiple benefits associated with indigenous fruits did not gain any popularity and further not taken into account as the possibly solution in addressing food and nutritional insecurity in rural areas. The study shows that there was a significant improvement in food security from the consumers of indigenous fruits and vegetables than non-consumers. (PAGE 16)
