Wildman Steve Brill leads a foraging tour of Central Park, beginning at W. 103rd St. and Central Park West.

Central Park, always a great park for foraging, is spectacular in late spring. The wild fruits alone make the park worth visiting. Two species of mulberries, red and white, and their pink hybrid, drop berries everywhere. You only need to position a drop cloth under a branch and shake, to harvest a year's supply. These berries are perfect in any fruit recipe. They make great jam, and they freeze well too. When the bushes get full sunlight, the juneberries (serviceberries) are also spectacular. With a sweet flavor like blueberries, apples, and almonds, it's a testament to our disregard for nature that no one ever cultivated this top-notch fruit.
