Thanks J.L. As climate changes, everyone should think of alternate native edible plants, where ever they are on this planet. Yard gardens certainly. No Monsanto.

Staying with indigenous plants seems the wiser path. Those plants are more naturally able to adapt to the soil conditions, if any thing will be able to adapt.

Native plants are always better. But with planting the two side-by-side, won't they hybridize and destroy the superior genes of the native variety?
