Crop enterprise selection depends on several factors key among which are
1 Land,
2 Capital,
3 Labour,
4Certified seed
5 Water, and
6 Esp Market for your produce.
A Gross margin analysis for the crops you intend to grow will then guide you as to the best crop.
But as rule of thumb, horticultural crops like onions, tomatoes, Spinach and traditional African vegetables and fruits including passion, pawpaw, melon give good ROI.
But without a good cropping calendar to guide you on when to plant, you'll get high yields but low prices.
Onions are good coz you can store (about 6mnths) them and sell when the price is right. An acre can make you a Millionaire in just two seasons if you play your cards well.

If you going for melons search for sweet melons. Galia F1 or Cantaloupe. With that amount and location returns ziko poa. Only downside ni they require attention more than other types of melons.
