Do morels grow in CT?
    #12194511 - 03/13/10 12:56 PM (4 years, 6 months ago)

I was hoping someone could tell me if morels grow in the northeast. I live in CT and it seems morel season is almost here. I am new to mushroom hunting and would love to find some morels, but I would like to make sure I am not searching in vain.

If there are morels here in CT does anyone have any advice as to where and when to look.

Thanks.

Yep, they sure do grow in CT!

Blacks and yellows and half frees, with the yellows being the most common I believe.

I'd start looking towards the end of April on through May.

I'd start by looking under dead/old Ash and Elm, but they can grow in a wide variety of habitats and can be hard to find/spot.

Good luck!

Actually...click on the link in my signature to view a slide show on the morels I found last year in NY...not too far from CT!

Thanks a lot! I really appreciate it. It's been pretty warm here - 50's during the day and 40's at night (on average) and now its rained for the past few days. Could these conditions make for an early morel season?

I believe that the soil temps have been in the 50's for like 2 weeks now.

Thanks again for the good news!
