For the purposes of maimizing the diversity and edibility of our lands, I thought it would be great to make a list of every edible tree or bush I can grow here. I am in zone 5, hence the title. I am thinking of trees and bushes that can grow in this climate with little in the way of extra attention because I don't have time for that. Please help me make this list complete. I realize this list will be extremely long, we will have to keep adding to it when we have time. I am just putting a few on here to start.

Hybrid Chestnut
Oak
Pecan
Shagbark Hickory
Hardy Almond
Black Walnut
Carpathian Walnut
Japanese Walnut
Heartnut
Hybrid Hazelnut
Eastern Filbert
American Persimmon
Mulberry
Paw Paw
Apple
Pear
Plum
Peach
Apricot
Mayhaw
Russian Olive
Service Berry
Siberian Pea-shrub
Blueberry
Huckleberry
Raspberry
Blackberry
Honeyberry
Black Currant
Red Currant
