    There is a very strange fruit called the Boadark Apple (aka Osage Orange) that grows from the Ozarks down into East Texas. Almost no animals other than horses and possiblly possums will eat the fruit. The fruit is about the same size as a small grapefruit and has a bright green, pebbly skin...

    Wild persimmons (AKA American persimmon) are getting ripe here in Southeast Texas. Here on the farm there is an old persimmon tree that has been talked about in my videos for several months, and it is dropping its ripe persimmons. The American Persimmon is native to North America, grows wild...

    The cabin at the back of the property has a nice sized wild persimmon near it. 2018 the tree is loaded with persimmons. What a lot of people do not know, the Wild Persimmon grows well in sandy soil, tolerates drought well, and reproduces like crazy. All of the property are small Wild...

    I have several acres of muddy bog area that eventually drains out to another body of water. I am trying to figure out what to do with it. I am in zone 4. When I was a kid, my siblings and I essentially dried up a small bog area with willow trees. So, my first thought was to plant willow...

    Like similar ones, the topic of this thread is to compile information allowing one to create a list of nutritionally viable edible plants suitable for their own situation. Recognizing not all plants share the same optimal growing conditions, this thread is specific to cool, temperate areas that...

    A few years ago I planted various berry bushes. Three Nanking bush cherries went in an out-of-the-way location. Two died, one is thriving but only produced 3 cherries so far. We have one old gooseberry bush and a young struggling one. Another additions was a beautiful red currant in a shady...

    I'm trying to diversify my selection of perennial fruits, and gooseberries appear to possess a few important features I want: Tasty, abundant fruit for fresh eating or cooking/preserves. Cold hardiness; most nursery listings I've seen claimed to be hardy to USDA zone 3. They don't share any...

    My wife (Kristy) wants to grow some satsuma trees. So, who here has satsuma trees, how are they doing, and what is your location? I am going to guess they do not do very well up north?

    My best friend married a gal who's family has a farm. Last year they would fill her car to the brim with produce and she would bring it straight to my house since she doesn't eat it (score for me). Well, she finally came clean and her family was impressed I didn't let anything go to waste, so...

    I've been on the road a LOT for work and pleasure (mostly pleasure... YAY!), and haven't been able to get to the market as much for my produce demands. My usual breakfast is a homemade smoothie, serving for other meals when in a hurry. While most places now have smoothie/juice shops, I balked at...
  15. Edible & Non-Edible Plants
    I am interested in scattering some wild edible seeds that might be juice worthy and not clog up the machine too badly. I know dandelions and mulberries would be great but what others are there that flourish in the midwest? I have seen the wild carrots (queen anne's lace) and the roots are tough...
