Abstract
The most important belong to the genus Dolichos in the Pea Family. These species have tuberous roots, which are the part used, some up to 30 lb. or more in weight. Their stems, either erect or climbing, are produced annually and they frequently flower before their leaves are fully developed. Their leaves are trifoliolate, alternate, leaflets usually ovate, glabrous but usually !pubescent; flowers pea-like, pink .or red to mauve in few to many-flowered racemes or panicles. They are common in Brachystegia woodland or A cacia-Combretum-Comnziphora bush in fairly low-rainfall areas
