Sweet potatoes, white potatoes and onions also are important crops.
The principal crop is Bermuda onions; in 1909 it was estimated that 150o acres in the vicinity were devoted to this crop, the average yield per acre being about 20,000 lb.
The chief vegetables grown are potatoes, pumpkins, carrots, onions and tomatoes.
The food of the people consists as a rule of boiled rice with salted fresh or dried fish, salt, sessamum-oil, chillies, onions, turmeric, boiled vegetables, and occasionally meat of some sort from elephant flesh down to smaller animals, fowls and almost everything except snakes, by way of condiment.
Potatoes and onions are grown for exportation at seasons when they are scarce in northern Europe.
