EDIBLE PLANTS OF WETLANDS CATTAIL, TULE. Typha domingensis
Typha domingensis turns out to be one of the most edible plants of the wetlands. This native wild plant with this many uses is totally ignored, forgotten and abandoned in the Mayan areas.
This plant has huge potential to help local people. There are wetlands in many areas of Guatemala. Instead of infesting Guatemala with plants that are NOT native; let’s focus on plants that have been in Guatemala for centuries, for millennia.
