Where can I find a list of perennial zone 9 crops listed by the time of year they can be harvested?

I'd like to minimize my food storage requirements and maximize my fresh produce production. My preference is for high yield per acre varieties and crops that need only be planted once and require little to no ongoing maintenance for years.

This depends a lot on your location and what is easily  available to you as seeds and or plants ready for transplanting.

Do a search for perennial crop plants, you should find what you are looking for.

If you are in the US then the USDA site will have lots of helpful info, this info is also transferable as long as your conditions are near the same.

In any zone, you can have anything from draught to rain forest type conditions, these conditions are what will determine what will grow best in your location.

Some times, in the U.S. the cooperative extension makes a harvest chart for your area. Usually focuses on annuals though. But, yeah-especially if you are pulling in unusual perennials you might have issues. Try the rare fruit growers society.
