Wilderness Survival Edibility Test

One of the easiest ways to find food when you are lost in the wild is to look the different fruits that are available in the area. Not even the most known survivalist Bear Grylls, is able to identify every edible fruit or plant out there in the wild. However, you can use this simple diy survival fruit edibility test to help you.

You wont need any special equipment for this test, just simple knowledge that will help you determine whether what you want to eat is poisonous or not. The only thing I do not like about this particular test is that there is a long waiting period for the results. You may have not eaten for a while and waiting can be difficult to do. lol

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • fruit or plant
  • survival knife

Alright so here is what you do. Once you have picked the fruit, you can first test for a few things before the ultimate test. The first thing is to squeeze it and keep an eye on the stuff that oozes out. Anything gooey and sticky is not a good sign. Secondly, you can cut the fruit in half or simple split it open, and then apply your finger to see if again the fruit inside is sticky or slimy.

The ultimate test is to pull up your shirt if you are wearing a long sleeved shirt. Then locate some relatively soft area of skin on the inside of your forearm just above your elbow. Rub the open fruit to the area and the wait for at least an hour. If your skin reacts to the fruit then you know you for sure you should not be eating it. It’s a simple test but it can save your life.
