Nature offers a lush variety of healthful, intriguing, and delicious gruits and vegetables that don't require a gardener's green thumb to enjoy, yet most Americans limit themselves to about 60 or so fruits, vegetables, nuts, and grains. From horsetails, ferns, and conifers toshrubs, vines, and herbaceous s pecies, this guide describes how to find, identify and use hundreds of plants as tasty morsels.

Not worth the money

User Review  - friski2014 - Walmart

Strictly lists the plant names and how it can be used. NO information to help identify the plants or where to find them, or any details of the plant. Useless unless you already know what the plant is. Read full review
