Native to China, the Yuzu has been used and cultivated in this region for thousands of years. The fruit is tart, resembling a grapefruit with mandarin overtones.

The yuzu is more cold tolerant than most other citrus, being able to tolerate to -5 degrees

Rhubarb stalks taste amazing in deserts. Don't let rhubarb dry out as will set it back.

Can't kill it! My globe artichokes appeared to suffocate it, then when they thinned out I discovered plump, juicy stalks. Tend to be green, but lovely dipped in a little sugar!

Rhubarb

In warm climates there are 2 ways to get a yield. One is to dig up and FREEZE the plant for 4 weeks (in the deep freeze), then replant.2. Grow it in shade (including in long grass) to get it to stetch up.
