Hi Ken,
I would suggest researching this via the state University Extension Education
system of either Texas or Arizona. You should be able to find them on line. I am
also posting this with the NAFEX egroup. Hopefully there is someone in the area
that can point you in the right direction. I have grown rhubarb from seed, but am
not sure if this method of propagation is dependable for traits. Common sense
would say that if it's growing there, it should produce seed as adaptable to the
area or more so than the parent.  Good luck, .........vic
