Wild Edibles of Missouri

Ever wonder which plants are edible and which to avoid? The Missouri Department of Conservation has captured a now out of print book, Wild Edibles of Missouri by Jan Phillips, as a set of PDF files free for downloading. To access the files, just click on the book title above to open a new window where you can download each chapter.

As always, if you are uncertain whether a particular plant is edible or dangerous, ere on the side of caution and get a positive identification from an expert. Consuming the wrong plant could cause illness or death.


Thanks for commenting, Shawnda. I’m glad you enjoyed this link.

I thought I’d skim through the pdf files and enjoyed it so much I printed the whole thing, pictures and all! I’ll be sharing with daughters and my homeschooling girl scout troop- thank you for posting this amazing resource!
