Are pine cones edible?
While you are picking up pine cones for your craft project, you might be wondering if they are edible. Pine cones are really interesting little things! Did you know that Pine cones belong to a group of plants called gymnosperms and date back to prehistoric times. Pine cones contain a nut, but only about 20 varieties of pine cones are large enough to harvest and be edible. Pine nuts are quite tasty too, so if you are lucky enough to have access to those types of cones, enjoy!
