Please watch: “The Color of Our Primitive World- bushcraft paint”

Indian Cucumber (Medeola virginiana) is a great wild edible that tastes… you guessed it… like cucumber. Easy to identify and grows all over the eastern US and Canada. Considered an endangered plant in Illinois and Florida, please use discretion when harvesting. Only harvest when there are plenty in the area.
