WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE – Identifying Wild Edible Plants in Your Neck of the Woods

Posted by HGEL on 19 Jul 2011. Filed under  Garden Care, How To Guides, Plant Resources View Comments

Here are some reliable links from university cooperative extensions and other sources around the country.

As the plants will vary regionally it is important to seek out information pertaining to your specific region. REMEMBER: some plants are toxic at various levels of ingestion…single ingestion or cumulative.  Always use caution when identifying and using wild plants and, of course, NEVER eat any plant that may have been sprayed with pesticide.

“The prime directive in foraging for wild plants for consumption is simple, yet its violation has led to illness and even fatalities. You must never consume any part of any plant whose identity is questionable. There are a number of plants whose look-alikes are toxic and whose identity must carefully be ascertained before they are used.  Certain parts of some edible plants may be poisonous. Some plants are edible when young but become toxic later on. Some plants are edible during certain seasons but toxic during others. ” Familiarizing Students with some Edible & Poisonous Wild Plants, Barry s. Kendler, Dominick J. Pirone, Manhattan College, Bronx, NY, ·  The American Biology Teacher Vol. 51, No. 8 (Nov. – Dec., 1989), pp. 463-471 Published by: University of California Press.

When in doubt, don’t eat it.

A note from HGEL:

The inherent risk in ‘wildcrafting”, “foraging”, or “forest farming”, unless guided by an expert, is illness or even death by mistakenly eating a plant that is toxic, a toxic plant part or a plant that is in its toxic phase. Therefore, HGEL strongly recommends cultivating safe wild plants from seeds bought from a reliable seed company. I have begun a listing of these plants and seed companies here and will update this list from time to time.


Seed Sources for Wild Edibles:

Territorial Seed Company – wild lettuces, dragon carrots, wild arugula (sylvetta), wild garden mustards, purslane, miners lettuce

Johnny Selected Seeds Company – wild arugula, wild bergamot, wild marjoram, Matt’s Wild Cherry tomato

Wild Edible Seeds – Agave, Amaranth, wild asparagus, burdock, clovers, plantain, pennycress, sorrels
