Cool, I hadnt heard of the russian pomegranate variety, that would grow here :D

Goumi is a very rich source of lycopene, for what its worth (a tomato phytochemical incorrectly correlated to prostate health)

Ziziphus jujuba could be on there. 'Chinese Date', hardy to zone 6 and rarely bothered by diseases.

Where I live there are hundreds and hundreds of saskatoon/silver buffalo berry shrubs around. You can just take a walk in nature and munch away. There are also a number of edible grains in the area as well.

Interesting.

Last winter, I remember I posted about a neighbor who had a really magnificent banana plant on their glass-enclosed porch. This past summer it and two smaller ones were growing in their yard, but instead of being brought inside this fall, they appear to have been cut back, and the "trunks" are enclosed in what looks like big heavy cardboard tubes. I didn't think that would be adequate to protect them if we have the kind of winter we usually do, but time will tell.
