Wild Fruit is an authoritative field guide to fruit commonly found in the wild which will allow walkers and foragers to accurately identify not just edible but also ornamental fruit.

Handy pictograms provide key information and Wild Fruit also features tasting notes and historical information about the uses of many fruits. Wild Fruit is lavishly illustrated with illuminating images of plants at different points in their maturity and photos show young growth, leaves and berries to aid accurate identification.
