Morels are highly sought after culinary mushrooms. Their texture is meaty, and they have a delicious deep nutty flavor that turns 'mushroom haters' into morel lovers. Chefs, both amateur and professional, prize morels in their cuisine. There's a good chance that you have never had the opportunity to enjoy a good quality morel mushroom.
Morel mushrooms are expensive. Out of season, a pound of frozen morels can cost over $50, and fresh morels may be unobtainable. That’s because morels are typically found in forests, foraged by collectors from jealously guarded secret spots.
Now you can grow them in your own backyard year after year easily!

Hardwood Morel (Morchella americana) is a warm loving variety of Morel that favors creekbeds, hardwood forests, and higher temps than many other varieties. Often grows well under 'high stress' conditions such as ornimental beds, walkways and landscaped areas.

Often producing large fruits when mature, this was the first variety of Morel mushroom sucsesfuly cultivated. The Blushing Morel Grows very well in woodchips and can be reliably cultivated with little experience. This is one of the longest lasting Morels and can fruit for weeks after the other varieties are done for the season.
White Morel (Morchella deliciosa) is a commonly harvested spring mushroom producing 2-5 inch fruitbodies and usually appering an off white or cream white color. The sponge–like head is egg-shaped or pine cone-shaped with pits and ridges. On all forms the ridges are paler than the pits.
Early Black Morels (Morchella elata) are generally the first true morel to appear in spring. The fruiting body is often very large. The sponge-like head is variable in shape but usually elongated and pointed. The young black morel may appear almost white when covered by leaf litter, but as it matures the black morel will have brownish pits and dark ridges.
Burn Site Morels (Morchella tormentosa) are known for growing in massive and prolific amounts for one-two years in areas after fires or burns have occurred. They are smaller in size than other morels, but fruit so heavily that they often make considerably more total weight when found.
