Morels in NC?
    #1807360 - 08/12/03 10:29 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

Can you find Morels in NC, I heard it was a good place to find them but haven't found any yet. If so where do they grow? I've looked all over in the woods for them but no luck, maybe I'm not looking in the right places. Oh yeah are there any edible corals?

Morels can be found in North Carolina. You need to try in May.

There are several species of edible coral mushrooms. The biggest problem with corals is that they're difficult to identify accurately to species. If you want to try some, I'd advise avoiding any that are gelatinous inside (cut 'em in half to check) or taste peppery or bitter. As with any mushrooms, they will taste best when they are young and fresh. Pretty much all of them turn the color of cardboard as they age, so if your coral is cardboard colored it's probably well past its eat-me-by date. The best ones tend to have thick, solid bases and brightly colored tips.

You should also avoid eating very much of corals, because a lot of them seem to cause diarrhea. So eat in moderation.

Good luck and happy mushrooming!

Are there any poisenous corals and can you find morels during the summer? We've had alot of really good mushroom weather lately, I even seen a special on the news warning unexperienced mushroom pickers not to go out and pick because there are so many mushrooms out right now that there's a good chance they will pick the wrong kind.

There are coral species that have caused poisonings. But corals are difficult to identify accurately to species, even with a microscope.

Morels are a spring mushroom. Here in Colorado there are areas that will produce them into August, but I'm talking about places near timberline. At this time of year any mushrooms you find that resemble morels are by far more likely to be false morels, which are dangerous.

Happy mushrooming!

Morels are so peculiar that anything similar would be probably gyromitra which is a deadly poisonous shroom. Morels caps look more like a honeycomb while gyromitra looks more like a brain.
