I'm new to the whole permaculture thing but I have lived in the mountains in North Carolina my entire life one thing people grow here a lot is blueberries Huckleberry's do fairly well also blackberries raspberries and grapes there's a type of grape that grows wild in my part of western North Carolina don't know what the scientific name is but everybody calls them Fox grapes they grow beside creeks and rivers they're really not that good to eat raw but they make excellent jelly also in my region people grow apples pears chestnuts also grow here cherries but I guess that one's pretty obvious

Hey Mark, Useful Plants Nursery in Black Mountain, NC carries a lot of edible landscaping plants. They've been a primary source for me. I'm in Raleigh.
