PLEASE ONLY GATHER, MORELS IN A NET BAG SO IT CAN SPREAD ITS SPORES!!
Morels are a famous group of edible mushrooms fairly abundant in temperate regions. They are found in the spring in open woodlands, and along stream, and river banks.
All are stocked, with pitted, spongy, rounded, cone like heads. Varying in color from tan to light brown or gray.
All species of Morchella are eatable, but beware as with most all plants, and mushrooms there are always look a likes, and can be very deadly!!
The copy cat of the morel (FALSE MOREL) looks more brain like (the cap is actually shaped like a brain), and it has no sharp pointed cap, but is round, and it hang down toward the ground.
