Come visit us in the desert!
~ There many edible plants in the desert such as:
1.Barrel Cactus Fruit
2.Spiny Hackberry berries
3.Prickly Pear Cactus
When you come to the desert you will try many different foods that you may have never had. The food in the desert is very different but VERY tasteful. An example would be the fruit of the Barrel cactus. Yes I did just say a plant you are probably thinking I'm crazy but beyond that spiky outer layer the top of the cactus has a sweet and juicy fruit.The plants in the desert adapt to where they don't need as much water to survive, but when they do receive water they store it inside and save it. Some other plants in the desert consist of the Brittle Bush, Chainfruit Cholla, Cresote Bush, Joshua Tree, the Ocotillo, and many more.
Deserts are very arid or dry regions. The amount of rainfall deserts receive a year is 10 inches or less. Some years there may be no rainfall at all. Dry desert climates are formed by high pressure zones in which cold air descends. The descending air becomes warm, but instead of releasing rain, the heat from the ground evaporates the water before it can come down as rain. The found is extremely hot due to the suns rays beating down on it directly overhead. There are usually two or three variations of a desert climate. There is a hot desert climate, cold climate, and sometimes mild climates.
