Whether you’re camping, bugging out, or lost in the wilderness without food rations, knowing your surroundings and what might be edible to survive can be extremely crucial to life or death. For thousands of years people have consumed edible plants and flowers in the wild to sustain life — and in almost any imaginable situation.
Knowing what to eat, what will give you energy to move about, or even knowing what to eat in the wild that will make you deathly ill or even cause death should be a top priority. We hope you’ll take a moment and print this page, which lists the top edible plants we’ve gathered from around the web and put into one place.
List of Top Edible Plants & Weeds
Note: Some of the edible plants or weeds charts below may contain duplicates.
This list should be a great starting point to collection pictures and names of the most widely eaten wild plants, berries, and weeds. Picking up a book from Amazon that lists edible plants may also prove invaluable in a life-threatening situation where you have to keep yourself or your family alive.
