Abstract: The authors reported a total of 44 species of edible plants used by the Temuan villagers in Tering village (Malaysia). A total of 26 species were planted, 11 species were both wild and planted and 7 species were wild. As for the growth habit, 21 species were herbs, 20 species were trees and 3 species were shrubs. In terms of food preparation for eating, 18 species were eaten both raw and cooked, 14 species were eaten raw while 12 species were eaten cooked. Most of the species reported were non-native to Malaysia. The knowledge of edible native plants itself may become diluted or lost as the young Temuan are less keen to use native food plants.
