morels in VA?
    #4095524 - 04/25/05 04:48 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

i was googling this subject last night and found a few sites that hinted to the notion that morels grow in Virginia, but I've yet to see any remotely in-depth discussion of it.  all these threads about them with beautiful photographs and the promise of a tasty reward are enough to make me VERY interested in hunting for them. 

i hope this isn't against the rules to ask, but since i've already googled it, i was hoping some of you might have a bit more knowledge than the online archives about it.  has anyone ever found morels growing in the southwestern/south-central part of Virginia? 

I'm in the New River Valley area and the temperature is a bit chilly lately, but as soon as it warms up a bit I'm going to start my hunting..  I've never eaten a morel, so I'm excited about the possibility.  :grin:

Yes they grow there and they are now in season. My dad stopped by work today to show me the fifteen he found on his lunch break, little black ones, about three to four inches each.

Look around dead elm trees with the bark falling off.
