About this app

Falling Fruit is a 501(c)3 nonprofit based in Boulder, Colorado, USA. All proceeds from sales of the app help pay to keep our servers online. The app purchase is itself a tax deductible donation, and we greatly appreciate your support in keeping the project online!

Our global map of edibles 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. The imported datasets range from small neighborhood foraging maps to vast professionally-compiled tree inventories. This amounts to thousands of different types of edibles (most, but not all, plant species) across thousands of cities around the world. Beyond the cultivated and commonplace to the exotic flavors of foreign plants and long-forgotten native 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.

The paid mobile app is worse than the free browser version. I'm in probably one of the best parts of the world for this thing, and I had to refund it. I downloaded in hopes of finding all the plum trees in the East Bay for a foraged jam-making event, but found the search far too specific (like, 10 cultivars of just the *European* plum, with no option to search a broader filter). Neither map nor list view has complete info, and they're impossible to cross-reference. I could go on...

Nice, though the functionality is lacking in some areas. For example, it should be possible to select an item in the list view and then see that specific item highlighted on the map. I love the idea as I've kept a private fruit map for years, though I think iNaturalist has far more content at the moment, despite not having an edible fruit focus.

An app I want to love more but that is missing basic functionality, like labels in the map view (which ironically the free online version has) and a way to view an item from the list view on the map view. I hope my buying of the app can help support the developers in implementing these features so others will have a better time. As it stands now, it's hard to recommend a purchase.
