Native American traditional methods of utilizing perennial plants for food and general use continue to be practiced in modern society. Modern research into the origins of these uses have provided insight into how these may provide expanded benefits to society at large. This presentation will serve as an introduction to traditional uses of the Southwest peach and Pinyon as well as ongoing Utah research into how these could be managed as alternative agroforestry crops in a broader context in the Southwest.
Edible trees—those native and nonnative trees that produce fruits, nuts, seeds and pods that suit human tastes—benefit the environment and increase food security. This presentation addresses edible tree characteristics, microclimate preferences, planting strategies, watering with non-potable supplies, tree maintenance and harvesting strategies.
