Do you ever pause when reading about Adam eating bread by the sweat of his brow and wonder what kind of cereal crops that bread was made of? When Cain brought of the fruit of the ground, what fruit did he bring?
Many of the crops we raise can be found in some form or other growing wild, but others (maize being the most obvious) don't exist without human intervention. Is it possible that Adam ate corn on the cob, or did later folks really modify teosinte as we're always told?
This could probably be divided into several separate discussions, but these thoughts are always swirling in my head and I would love some input.
Pretty much anything having to do with the history of crops is welcome in this thread. So...
