    My wild edibles are the runnin around kind. I have never developed a taste for veggies, I don't know what it is but I just can't do it. I have been making small steps as I get older. I do sometimes keep a garden for the wife and kids and she has told me the leaf lettuce tastes different from head? lettuce although I don't know if it is actually taste or just the texture. Wild lettuce would be similar to leaf lettuce.

    You have to remember that wild foods haven't had the centuries of selective breeding to make them taste and grow like our usual garden vegetables and fruit so you can't really compare them.
    Are you kidding? Maybe in Vic...but in central OZ there are tons of tasty wild edibles (and lots more in other areas of OZ from what I've heard) that me, my wife and my in-laws use as a regular food source. They certainly taste much better than garden vegetables...I couldn't compare bland store-bought veggies to honey-ants, witchetty grubs, wild bush tomatoes, bush passionfruit, bush bananas, bush onions, bush orange, quandong, etc...my favorite are the honey-ants...there's lots of tasty edibles in OZ

    I like most parts of cattail. Like Jerusalem Artichoke, like day lily tubers, shoots and flowers. LOVE indian cucumber when I can find it. Fiddleheads are good, though I prefer em smothered in butter. Ramps, wild onion and garlic all yummy! Like wintergreen tea but actually can't stand pine needle tea! Queen annes lace (wild carrot) is ok. I love packing a trout (or other fish) with sorrel then wrapping it up and cooking it on the coals! Just a few.

    I have heard that May apples are edible. Anybody ever tried them?
