Since 1974, the town of Ngaoundéré has witnessed an explosion due to the inauguration of the railroad track that leaves all the way from Yaoundé, and the national road that links this town to that of Garoua in the North of Cameroon. These facilities have encouraged the creation of industries, trades and services, followed in 1982 and 1983
by the creation of a University center and the raising of the town to the rank of a provincial capital. The explosion of the population coupled the engrave economic crisis, and the people struggles for survival began to pose a serious problem of space in the
city and in suburbs where one notices a remarkable breakthrough in fruit cultivation. The interest of this study is not in the profitability of this culture nor the whole system, but rather its development in a region where, due to civilization, the tree has never been very welcome. Indeed, ever since the Jihad conquests of the 18th century, the people have developed a phobia for the tree in the region whose main activity is cattle raising.
