Did you know that Mesoamerican peoples domesticated Arvensian and wild plants with little or no degree of domestication? In the indigenous rural areas of Mexico it is very common to observe that during the weeding of the milpas, people tolerated different species of edible annual arvense plants or quelites.
Examples of this form of management can be seen in verdolagas. In addition, other wild foods like nopales, aloe vera, dandelion and various herbs were used as medicine and had extensive culinary uses. Our Ornelas farm box includes an abundance of Mesoamerica plant species as well as others commonly used in Latinx American cuisine.
