Edible Native Plants

For those species that can be part of a Wild Food Garden, we have plethora resources. Each detailed description of the books, plants, and collections will tell whether it's used as a green, for bulbs and roots, or for its seeds, flowers, berries, or shoots.

Explore this dimension of native plants, and you will be well rewarded. Check out our Book Section, and also, our proprietor's books California Foraging and The Real California Cuisine, for an in-depth investigation into California's edible plants. We have also tagged our plants that offer a window into the world of native California cuisine.
