(Unicorn Plant, Doubleclaw, Red Devil’s Claw) Self-seeding annual native to the deserts of the American Southwest.  Not to be confused with African Devil’s Claw (Harpagophytum procumbens).  Among the Native Americans, the dried claw-like fruits are stripped of their abundant fiber and used in basketry.  Young fruits edible, similar to ocra.  Seeds also edible.  Ripe fruits 4 to 6 inches.  Traditional usage (American Indian): arthritis.  Plant prefers full sun and dry, nutrient-poor soils.  Scarify seeds and soak overnight in warm water, then plant in warm, fast-draining soil.  Water when surface becomes dry, and discontinue watering when fruits begin to mature.
