Mother’s Day is the heart of morel season across much of the United States. In many of the more southern states, morels start to appear in March and Mother’s Day marks the last weekend of Morel hunting. Mother’s Day usually signals the beginning of morel hunting season in the northern tier of states.

The Morel Mushroom is know by many names: Morchella, Merkel, Morrel, Sponge Mushroom, Dry Land Fish, Pine Cone Mushroom, Molly Moochers, Hickory Chicks… but no matter what you call them, each spring avid morel hunters struck by morel madness drive and hike for hours to fields and forests across the United States in hopes of finding the elusive, tantalizing, and delicious morel mushroom. This year, think of Mother's backyard. Gourmet Mushroom Product (GMHP) now offers Morel Habitat Kits so mothers can enjoy growing morels in their backyard and have a personal supply of fresh morel mushrooms: Morchella esculenta the “good to eat,” large, late season white morel. Morel Habitat morels have the same flavor and quality as morels found in the wild. The Morel Habitat can supply an individual with pounds of morel mushrooms in a garden area as small as 4 - 5 square feet.

Morel Habitats are perennial and may be started on Mother’s Day or any time your soil is workable - Spring, Summer, Fall and even Winter (in areas with a mild climate). Morel Habitats may be started in any type of soil and have produced morel mushrooms in all areas of the United States that have a definite transition from winter to spring. GMHP provides spawn (seed) which contains unique morel strains to seed a backyard Morel Habitat which can produce pounds of morels each year in a properly maintained 4’ X 4’ area. Typically, only a few pounds of morel mushrooms are found the first spring it produces; the next year often provides the better crops, and crops may tend to vary in size in subsequent years. Customers have found morels in their Habitats 25 years after they were established!
