Tepary Beans were used for many generations by many Native American cultures as a staple and reliable food crop.
Over the years they were selected to be more drought tolerant and heat tolerant. (However, they do not like wet heavy clay soils. They need good drainage.)
This huge pepper was selected for heavy yields and large robust plant structures to support lots of peppers.
Plant produces high yields of flavorful pigeon peas. Pigeon Peas can be served in the same manner as green peas or cowpeas, combining them with other vegetables
Fodder beets have been around since the 1400s if not earlier. These beets were prized as nutritious animal feed that was easy to store. Fodder beets are hardy, adaptable and palatable.

Pre-1900. High yielding Dent corn. 10-13 ft. sturdy stalks are often used to support pole beans. 6-9 in. ears, 12-18 rows/ ear, 1-2 ears/stalk. Grows well in drier areas (drought-tolerant). Makes great corn bread and polenta as well as attractive corn cob pipes. Superior for grinding into flour, or for roasting ears.
Mammoth Red is the best clover for deficient soils.
Mammoth red is tall, growing at 2-3'. It is quick-growing clover. Plant in the spring, summer or fall, alone or with grain/grass. Mammoth red will grow in more acid soil (pH 5.0-6.0) than other clovers if lime is applied at seeding time. This is a popular biennial used for Nitrogen addition and hay crops.
Leaves are deeply and closely curled. Flavor is better than most curled varieties. Double and triple leaves are held high away from the ground, keeping them clean.
