Falling Fruit is an all-volunteer 501(c)3 nonprofit based in Boulder, Colorado, USA. All proceeds from sales of our mobile app help pay to keep our servers and website online. Purchasing the app is itself a tax deductible donation, and we greatly appreciate your support in keeping Falling Fruit online!
Our global map of edible plants is not the first of its kind, but it aspires to be the world's most comprehensive. While our users contribute locations of their own, we comb the internet for pre-existing knowledge, seeking to unite the efforts of foragers, foresters, and freegans everywhere. Imported datasets range from small neighborhood foraging maps to vast professionally-compiled tree inventories. So far, this amounts to over 1,200 different edible types (most, but not all, plant species) distributed over nearly one million locations. Beyond the cultivated and commonplace to long-forgotten native plants and the exotic flavors of foreign plants, foraging in your neighborhood is a journey through time and across cultures.
Falling Fruit is not associated with Fallen Fruit. Fallen Fruit can be found at fallenfruit.org.

Great App :: Powerful Tool for Botanical Discovery
Hey y'all, thank you SO MUCH for developing this great interface for people around the world to share knowledge about discovering the great green growing world around us.
Tracking the edibles in urban landscapes brings up an idea that there may be scarcity if everyone knows...and also the opportunity for us to become aware that we can plant edible landscapes into our communities. It is a cause worth working and fighting for.
Fruit trees on every corner.
This app is has an incredibly easy-to-use interface that is functional from the get-go. No learning curve here.
I just wish there was a way to edit/delete location on a pin I dropped in the wrong place, or, for example if a developer bulldozes the incredible elderberry grove I shared in the past. I would love to see that addition.
