    I advise being near a good water source before partaking. Those things leave a tickle in my throat anyhow that makes me more thirsty than normal.

    very interesting. I have some yucca plants in my garden and would like to cultivate more. Can I plant the seeds, or the fruit to make more plants?

    Thanks for sharing this info. I know way too little about desert survival.

  • we also have something very similar (chagual) , we eat the fresh stock, which is about the diameter of your wrist or forearm, -it is minced and made into salad, with lemon juice, coriander, sometimes onion, red peppers, or even raw mountain papaya

  • Ah good. I found your video on the yucca. So you eat the fruit not the root. I never tried it. Never knew the football shaped pods, or fruit were edible. Seems tasty to me.

    Just found your videos and so far I love them. The yuccas in my yard are blooming so I picked a few of the fruit and threw them in the oven with some oil, salt, and pepper. Seriously delicious, and taste very similar to okra.
