When we think of edible trees we tend to focus on a few common varieties that give us fruit. However, many excellent less well-known trees can produce edible flowers, oil, seed, nuts, leaves, sap and bark as well as fruit. Many also have important medicinal applications. We also identify other uses of products derived from these trees, including fibres for clothes, rope and paper, oils for lubricants, fuels, water proofing and wood preservatives, dyes, construction materials, and more. In this book we describe 50 of our favourite edible trees, each one illustrated and arranged alphabetically by common name. Complementing the images is a physical description of each species, and information on their origin, growth-habit, preferred hardiness zone, edible and medicinal ratings, known hazards, weed potential, propagation, care and cultivation. This book describes and provides advice on growing Plants For A Future’s favourite edible trees.Biographie de l'auteur :
It is our belief that plants can provide us with the majority of their needs, and in a way that cares for the health of our planet. Potentially, plants can meet most or all of our food needs and many other commodities, whilst also providing a diversity of habitats for the native flora and fauna. Plants For A Future (PFAF) is a Registered Charity providing information on edible and otherwise useful plants suitable for growing outdoors in a temperate climate. All proceeds from the sale of this book go towards funding PFAF's work, including the development and maintenance of the freely available Plants Database at www.pfaf.org
