I recently was gifted a start for a yellow fleshed Cassava. I'll have enough to share by next year but only have two small cuttings growing now. I also have one yuca smuggled out of Cuba by a fellow who strung pieces into a necklace and wore it out of the country.

I don't have anything exceptional in pigeon pea only a tan and a speckled types. I am looking for a black seeded type andd a short season type known as Georgia Two said to bear in Georgia at 1 meter in 65 days.

I lost my spotted variety but I still have the purple ones. I just toss the seeds we don't eat in random places in the yard.
Biodiversity is key.
