I know some people say you can eat the false but I have not tested that theory and donít plan too.  :chuckle: We have way too many real morel around where I live to screw around with false 👍 pianoman probably knows if you can eat false ?

The term "false" morel means different things to different people. in the species Gyromitra, which includes "snowbank" morels, you can eat them many times without a problem and then wham, get quite sick. Organ damage is possible. Stay away and I'd never eat a Gyromitra. Verpa bohemica, or thimble cap or early morels are safe to eat if cooked well and not consumed in large quantities (really, like any mushroom). I like to break off most of the stem when I cook them.

Still too early for the east side I'm guessing. Couple weeks maybe?

Was out Sunday between 2000-4000 and definitely too early. The soil is still very cold and the ground is too wet in my opinion. Last year there was an enormous bloom between May 10 and May 25 in my areas. I did find a few new spots that I am pretty sure will have a lot of morels in the near future though.

..and other areas too for sure.  Many varieties to look for.  They like fir trees mixed with hardwoods (leafy) as a start.  Avoid cedar.  Get on the green line as it goes up the mountain in the spring. South facing slopes. Areas of filtered sunlight.

In my neck of the woods we find them in cottonwood stands.
$5 is a lot of money if you ain't got it
