I am always on the search for unusual vegetables that like really hot weather. We always have really hot weather (some days above 100 and, recently, even a few days above 110). I think there have to be some crops out there from tropical areas that will do well but that Americans don't usually eat.

Some of the old standards I grow are: cowpeas (Crowder and purple-hull), sweet potatoes, okra, squash, melons, and peppers.

A couple of new ones I'm trying this year that seem to be doing well are Asian long beans (aka asparagus beans) and Malabar spinach.

Anybody have any other ideas?

Indian runner beans will come back every yr in warmer climates and the bees love the flowers, I'm sure sunchokes would do well also

I grow a lot of tomatoes. This year I'm also growing tomatillos.

I just figure that there have to be a whole lot of vegetables that get grown in hot places that taste good but I don't know about. Some of them would grow here in Oklahoma. However, Google doesn't turn up much useful information.
