Name: Red Maple
Binomial: Acer rubrum
Family: Sapindaceae

The sap, while generally less sweet than that of the Sugar maple, can be tapped and processed in a similar manner.

The seeds, also called samaras, are small and come to maturity in the months of September and October.

These seeds offer flexibility in consumption, being suitable for both raw and cooked preparations.

Additionally, the inner bark presents itself as an edible component, particularly useful in survival scenarios.
