Since I live in Zone 5a, it’s probably too cold for me to grow Hackberries, but it sounds like a great option for those living in warmer climates. However, I did have some success growing Tiger Nuts (Chuga). Looking forward to seeing the produce in the soil when I dump out the bucket later this fall.

    This is a new plant to me so thanks for the introduction. Didn't know the Cannabaceae family had trees like this. But I can't see wanting to forage for these on a regular basis. It just sounds like too much effort for what you get. A survival food, maybe.
