    Dear Paluku Jean-Pierre,

    Thanks for your query. I suggest in the first instance that you contact an agent from the SENASEM (Service National de Semences) department in your area who will be able to assist you further.
    Please ensure that seeds are purchased from a reputable source to reduce the risk of disease in the plants.

    Kind regards,
    Claire
