Edible Hot Weather Crops

 Blue Pea Vine
 Filipino White Sweet Potato
 Tulsi Indian Holy Basil

Hibiscus Radiata  Thai Lemon Hibiscus

They love full sun and the humid heat...just keep their soil damp with water from your rain barrel. On my front porch honor system plant sales tables are a few plants each of: Sweet Cassava (3-4 feet tall!), African Blue Basil, 'Tulsi' Indian Holy Basil (used in Ayurvedic medicine for 4,000 years), Lesbos Basil (does not set seeds, root cuttings), Thai Lemon Hibiscus (tart edible leaves), Blue Pea Vine (lovely cobalt blue edible blossoms) and Filipino White Sweet Potato. They are in 1 gallon pots filled with homemade soil from free range chickens making my compost, and are $4-$5 each. If I am out just slip your cash through the white slot in my red office door on my front porch. Thanks in advance. John 3212 West Paxton Avenue Tampa FL 33611
