I purchased chinese yam seeds here last year and I got about 50% germination. Very cheap.

Chinese Yam Seeds

I would like to find Groundnut (Apios Americana) as well.

You could inform him the the "American Dream" of the white picket fence, lawn, etc. is just that.....a dream!  That dream is just about over.  You could try to reason with him but that would most likely not work.

I believe passionate people are sometimes labeled "Assholes".  I catch myself getting so worked up about something I am passionate (and sometimes not so knowledgeable) about and come across as a real jerk.  It isn't intentional, it just happens.  A true friend of the "asshole" should try to correct his or her behavior in a nice way.  Chances are they don't even know they are being an a-hole.

It works on a plant family basis, i.e. all brassicas are lumped together.

Anyone know a good book or other source for detailed information on various plant guilds for temperate climates?

I would be interested in having it just for the sake of diversity.  It is a shame it doesn't set seed. Have you tried the leaves as livestock feed?
Perennial Buckwheat - Fagopyrum dibotrys

Anyone have this or know where to get it?
Yep, I think it is a Callery Pear.

Here is another photo I took where you can see the fruit is starting to darken.

Thanks for the input guys!

I looked up Guava and see that it is tropical.  I am in zone 8 in the southeast (I should have mentioned that).  The fruit does resemble young Guava fruit.

There is a grove of these and they are intermingled with some Black Cherries, Wild Plums and Dog Roses.
