Edible Wild Plant - Fishtail Palm

One of the most common edible plants on this side of the world and elsewhere is the Fishtail Palm. The roots are edible and not only edible, but tasty. They are sweet and sort like coconut.

The outer bark of more mature trees offer a very fibrous material that is excellent fire tender.

Fishtails Palms are all over the place here. There is no need to go hungry with these being so prolific. Between these and the hundreds of species of ginger, you can easily get quite a few carbs with very little effort.
