"Tanim ng Diyos" was what the farmers called sayote in Bauko. It was one of those vegetables that just grew spontaneously like kulitis in Capas or sili labuyo in Rizal. Because it was everywhere, you can imagine how the farmers could take it for granted. Neither was it very financially rewarding to cultivate seriously as its commercial price would range anywhere from 2 - 30 PhP per kilo. How can you possibly plan with that? But how things have changed! Since the price hike last year and increased buyer interest, sayote canopies have been replacing the fields as the crop of choice. Why? It's promoted as the new malunggay-- chock full of antioxidants that are anticancer, anti-diabetes and anti-inflammatory. Great stuff.
