JonnaSudenius: Thanks, I went through that list and updated my wishlist with species that I thought might grow in my climate.
Star: Wikipedia says, "Lack of moisture makes [skirret] root more fibrous." LOL! Like I need to be growing a fibrous plant that gets even more fibrous when it's arid.... The dahlias I grew this year were plenty fibrous. But I'm trying to grow okra -- one of the most heat-loving and frost-intolerant plants around. Hee hee hee.
I am already growing several crops from the skirret family. They thrive around here. I even have closely related weeds and wild-relatives. It looks productive.
