Wapato (sagittaria latifolia)

A native, aquatic edible plant, wapato grows best along the edges of streams and ponds. It will grow right out of the mud on the bank and into water 2ft deep. Wapato is also known as arrowhead because of the shape of the leaves.

Wapato was a staple of native peoples across the U.S. It produces round, potato like tubers about the size of a golf ball.

Aquatic edible plants are a deeper step into resilient food systems. They can grow in mud, where no tractor could ever operate. They grow fast because of constant access to moisture. Even if the plants are never eaten they produce copious amounts of biomass and provide critical habitat for amphibians, aquatic insects, and young fish. If you have a pond or a swamp, there is no reason not to add edible aquatics, they are incredibly easy to grow.
