Edibility of Wild Plants

Below is a link to a guide where you can learn how to distinguish types of edible/poisonous plants growing in the wild, as well as proper edibility testing methods for plants you come across.

Before you continue, please read below…I do NOT want to be responsible for someone accidentally poisoning themselves! 😦

This is to be used as a guide for -survival situations-.

I would NOT recommend eating any wild plant that you can not positively, without a doubt identify, unless you are in a situation where you are without food; in that case, use the guide to test the plant before consumption.

You can also use this guide to learn more about the edible plants in your region and learn to visually identify them (just google pictures of the plants you wish to identify and have at it).

You really never know when this information might come in handy!

You can find the guide here.

(By the way, the picture is of a dandelion plant…a common weed to most people. Not only are all the parts edible, but it’s good for you, and tastes good too!)

    Sounds complicated. Think I can identify a dandelion, though! Will have to learn edibility of plants one at a time. Ground ivy is another I know well…
