Are some plants aphrodisiacs, or is that just a myth? This week on We Dig Plants, Garden expert and plant detective Helen Yoest takes us on a romp through history, lore and ethnobotany to find out plants got their "hot" reputation – and what modern science has to say about it. Discover which common garden plants and favorite edibles have that ""something extra,"" and why. Her book, Plants With Benefits is filled with lush photography, growing tips, and recipes for preparing teas, potions and tasty treats for your pleasurable use. Can a plant create feelings of arousal, contentment or receptivity? It looks like the answer is yes. This is the first book about selecting garden plants for their sex appeal. This program was brought to you by Heritage Foods USA.

"Certain foods put you in a receptive mode, like cayenne pepper. it's heating the body and making you receptive." [14:00]
