False Morels

Most of us have heard of the fungi referred to as morels, and what a delicacy they are. Bear in mind that there are several species of false morels in New England, as well, some of which are very toxic, even deadly. Some species of false morels that are potentially edible resemble toxic false morels so closely that the only way to distinguish them is by examining their spores. Thus, be very sure, if you are a consumer of wild mushrooms, that you are able to tell a true morel from a false one!
