A wild prairie rose with a ripe red hip or berry

Mature wild fruits, berries, seeds, and the above-ground portions of asparagus, mushrooms and rhubarb can be collected for personal (non-commercial) use on waterfowl production areas. Some of the most commonly-collected edibles include chokecherries and wild plums. Most fruits ripen in late summer, though asparagus and rhubarb are much better collected in the spring.
