    Hint to John: Africa is a very large continent with many climatic zones.

    The southern coast of the Mediterranean is in Africa. There are mountains, swamps, rainforests, microclimates, deserts, and of course a lot of savannah/miombo light forests. On the southern coast there are even seals (Robben Eiland = Seal Island).

    Most of Africa is elevated on a 2/3 to 1 mile high plateau, which mitigates the climate.

    Thanks for doing this vid. I think learning about garden plants that can (and cannot) survive in extreme heat gives an amazing lesson to those aspiring to learn more about gardening (and how plants respond to heat) like myself.

    Wow, I had no idea there was a use for mesquite tree's other than bbq wood! Here in Central Texas we do everything we can to kill the stuff. It's very invasive and will choke out the oaks and anything else in it's path in no time. I could likely fill up a truck bed right now just by driving a mile perimeter around my house and that's a conservative estimate, lol. I'll have to try grinding the beans, fascinating!
