Could I eat that? Eastern Redbud

Do you have an Eastern Redbud in your yard?

The Eastern Redbud, Cercis canadensis, grows in several eastern states. There are many along the highways in Kentucky. They are grown here on Cape Ann as ornamentals. Who knew you could eat some of the parts!

The excellent video by Green Deane from EatTheWeeds.com will explain which parts and when to harvest some of your redbud.

Remember to be sure you have identified the tree correctly by checking other reference materials and do not the harvest near roadways.

The Cercis canadensis is available at Corliss in Ipswich, image from the 2012 Catalog. Prince may change in 2013.
