Locations are marked as unverified if their position, identity, or existence is disputed. Many locations imported from tree inventories are marked as unverified because their edibility is uncertain (for example, "Pear" could be either an edible or decorative variety). Users are encouraged to travel to these locations and report their findings.
We enforce a taxonomy of edible types to keep the map organized and searchable. Novel types submitted by users are highlighted on the map as pending until they are added to the taxonomy or merged with an existing type. Some proposed types are so unique or ambiguous that they persist as unapproved indefinitely.
