Edibles Inventory

Making your yard work for it’s keep.

This list includes fruit trees, small fruits, but also plants like rhubarb, and asparagus.

“Edible” is not clear cut. Lots of things won’t poison you, at least in moderation. But some things are what the Cree and Blackfoot referred to as “Poverty Food” -- Stuff you only ate if you were starving.

There is a class that my grandmother referred to as ‘jamables.’ Too sour to eat fresh but useful to make jam, jelly, syrup, and otherwise give variety to long winters of potatoes, cabbage, carrots, and onions. (“Don’t forget turnips!” I hear someone cry. Believe me, I’m trying to forget turnips. Gaack!

I don’t include native trees that produce jamable choke cherry, pincherry, or our native black gooseberry. I also don’t include ornamental crabapples, buffaloberry, hawthorns. So you may want to go through the main list looking for these.

Norkent Apple

Norkent apple tree 3 yr old, with fruit. I should have thinned it down to only about half a dozen apples. But I wanted to see what it would do.


Norkent Apple

At the end of the season, I picked them. Not big here, but they are a nice snack size. One big advantage of small apples for small kids: You don’t discover half the apple behind the couch. Cores dry out so much faster.


Brookred plum

Even if you never get a plum off it, Brookred is worth having just for fall colour. Not all plums go this red, but if the plum itself is red, usually the leaves go at least pink in fall.


Pembina Plum

Pembina plums need a special technique. Let them get quite ripe, then bite a tiny hole in the skin, and squeeze the plum out. Mumble all the fruit off of it, and spit out the seed. Not a tidy plum to eat.

The skin is bitter, but the flesh is quite sweet. If you are fond of the bitter in marmelade, you may want to leave some of the skins in your jam.

Pembina is a pretty good pollenizer for other plums.


Toka Plum

Plums tend to bloom in early spring, along with leaves. Often they will bloom for the May long weekend.


Mustang cherry plum

Mustang cherry plum. Covered in flower in spring, dark red in fall, and they hold their leaves late.


Because of the way my spreadsheet works, negative numbers show what has been sold already, positive numbers show what was ordered or is presently here. Material that is quoted on doesn't show up here. At any given time during spring I have $20K to $50 worth of quotes out in the wind.
