Abstract: Research was conducted to collect and characterize several indigenous vegetable species obtained from Bogor and Pandeglang districts. Differences among accessions and their lineage were also studied. A randomized block design with three replicates was used during planting of each species. Accessions were collected from Nanggung, Parung, Tamansari, Cibinong (Bogor District), and Pandeglang, Mandalawangi, Cadasari, and Cimanuk (Pandeglang District). They consisted of nine kemangi (Ocimum americanum L.) accessions, 11 katuk (Sauropus androgynus (L.) Merril) accessions, 10 honje (Etlingera giseke) accessions, and eight kucai (Allium tuberosum Rottler ex Sprengel) accessions.
Morphological growth as well as agronomical characteristics were observed. Results showed that there were morphological and yield differences. The highest yield per plant (128 g) of kemangi was achieved by Cadasari accession, while for katuk it was by Mandalawangi accession (43.75 g/plant), and for kucai it was by Parung accession (16.62 g/plant). Honje flowered after 12 months, and the yield will be presented. The lineage among accessions and morphological differences of each species will be discussed.
