You grow and gain weight like the morel in May (Heronymus von Bock, 1546)
Morels are among the most coveted and also most expensive edible mushrooms. They were already known to the Greeks and Romans. They are among the first mushrooms to recapture the forests after the barren winter months. As classic heralds of spring, they like to accompany indicator plants such as snowdrops, lilies of the valley, cowslips or wild garlic. Depending on the weather and location, the first specimens can be harvested as early as March.
