1. Introduction of Tra Que Vegetable Village Hoi An

Tra Que Vegetable Village is located in Cam Ha commune, Hoi An, Quang Nam. The village was formerly known as Nhu Que village which used to grow fragrant vegetables like basil. In the 18th century, King Gia Long the Nguyen Dynasty, came to this place. He heard about a strange vegetable that had a pungent taste like basil and a pleasant aroma like camellia, so he changed the village name to Tra Que (which means Basil Tea in Vietnamese).

The village still maintains the traditional method of growing organic vegetables. It only grows spices such as onion, basil, perilla, cilantro, etc. The process of growing vegetables here is also very meticulous. The water for irrigation comes from underground sources. The fertilizer comes from seaweed picked up from the lagoon. Those are the reasons why the vegetables here are always green.
