Th Gascoyne district is no longer entirely reliant on bananas for its income. "Out of season" vegetable growing has obviously come to stay, but to-date only a few varieties of vegetables have been grown commercially, the principal ones being runner beans, followed by tomatoes, cucumbers, rock melons, pumpkins and capsicums in that order. To reduce the possibility of a glut of these lines, the Department of Agriculture at Carnarvon has conducted a series of trials on many other vegetables which could have commercial possibilities if grown out of season in the district.
