Fiddleheads are the young coiled fern leaves (about an inch in diameter) of the Ostrich Fern (Matteuccia struthiopteris). Nearly all ferns have fiddleheads, but those of the ostrich fern are unlike any other. The storage life is around 10 days. You must cook fiddleheads, do not eat them raw or undercooked, as you can become ill. Fiddleheads are a good source of potassium; they also contain Vitamin C, Niacin and Iron. The color varies, they may come in brown, black and purple, it depends on where we are getting them.

The western and eastern fiddleheads look way different. The western are not as pretty and they are in different colors. So if you are looking for the fiddleheads that are pretty, please wait for the season to begin.

Oregon Mushrooms has been sharing our passion for mushrooms with others via the Internet since our first eBay sale back in 1999. We started out smaller with a focus on high quality dried morel mushrooms but soon customers began asking after the availability of other types of mushrooms. As a result of this kind of demand, we've since expanded our high-quality inventory to offer a variety of dried and fresh seasonal and cultivated mushrooms as well as unique mushroom-related specialty and gift items, such as black truffle oil and white truffle oil and truffle butter and truffle sea salt. All of our products are GMO Free! We do not believe in selling anything that is genetically modified.
