Apples and potatoes.

I was just inquiring if apples were grown in Guyana. Because, back in the 70's they did experiment with apple aka "ice apple" in Guyana.  Also, they experimented with potatoes production, in Guyana.  And, that turned out to be another failure of the then govt. of Guyana.  

For those of you who are inquiring about my nationality,  I am of East Indian decent and was born in Georgetown, Guyana.  Further information can be gleaned from my FB Page.

The reasons for the failure was that the project was managed by square pegs,

I got some of the potatoes they were huge in size but the skin was green,not the color of the imported ones.

Do you know if they experimented with soybeans? Not sure, I am not an agricultural person, but it seems that this could be something that can be profitably grown in Guyana on a large scale.

I know about Orid dhall,my uncles had a plot in the early 60's before Burnham became Prime Minister,we were poor so i guess they were looking for substitute.

Soybeans

Unlike other legumes, soybeans contain all of the essential amino acids, making it a complete source of protein. One cup of cooked mature soybeans contains 28 g of protein. One cup of green soybeans, also known as edamame, contains 22 g of protein. Soybeans can be made into tofu, commonly used as a meat substitute in vegetarian dishes. A 1-cup serving of tofu contains 40 g of protein.

I read that plant protein is better for you than animal protein.

@Skeldon_Man, in the 1970s a man named Peter Kempadoo cultivated soybeans in the Mahaica-Mahaicony area. He made a soy breakfast cereal and I bought a packet from him at the Catholic Centre on Brickdam where he was exhibiting his various soy products. Kempadoo was a novelist also.

Thanks. I'll put on my list. Re-reading "The Great Escape" right now. "Wooden Horse" after, "Sly Company of People Who Care" after that and then this one.

I read Peter Kempadoo's "Guyana Boy" in the 1960s. After 50 or so years I remember a few lines:

"There was a baker/ who came from Jamaica/ he went to the toilet/with a thin piece of paper/ the paper was so thin/ that his finger slipped in...."

I wonder if my memory is sound.

And he ended up with a shitty finger and with the same hand he kneaded the dough  for the bread, pre washed. hehehe

Can you tell me the position his finger was in?
