Boreal Forest

[wp-members status=”in”]

The table lists the fruits, trees, mushrooms and other edibles you could find in the Boreal ecosystem of Northern Ontario. The foods listed here are selected for their taste. They are indigenous to the region and have traditionally been used as food or medicine. While many more edibles can be added to the list, we believe the foods below could potentially have a commercial value.
