Albino Morels

Frank, Debbie & Miker, here's one for you folks. I went out yesterday and found these 3 Morels. Whites in Lewiston are just beginning in the lowland hardwoods . I found these by a White Ash, in the wide open. ( not covered by leaves ) Stuck out like a "sore thumb" I wanted to leave one to grow but this place is hunted heavily. Anyway, I took them home and made a Morel Pizza out of them, with others, of course. Doing further research, as I was eating my find, I found out these are possible very, very rare. Could even be a strain from Lamington Island. ( where ever that is ) Which claims they are the only place they exist. Or it could just be a sterile morel. Or Morchella rufobrunnea ( M. deliciosa ) just some what deformed. I think I'll call it Morchella skrcenyii...LOL.

Oh, man. Those are strange looking. Reminds me of that blanched asparagus they grow under tarps. How'd they taste?

Re: Albino Morels

That was the first question they asked. Were they covered by leaves. No !! As far as taste, couldn't tell cause I put about 30 other Blacks with them. The bad part is, I knew better then to do something that dumb. It was one of them "Brain Fart Things" or the McMasters thing LOL

The best lessons are those learned before you wish you had known better, especially when thinking edible mushrooms.

That is awesome, Jack! Thanks for sharing. I've never seen anything like that!


Just when you think you aren't going to find any morels, something pushes you to climb that next hill. And once you get over that hill, guess what you find? That's right. NOTHING!

I have two elm tree's that produce the same thing the last three years, only found one this year, but they never get big, it appears yours are pretty decent size. I always called these "blonds" I researched it myself and found Western Blond morel to be the same.

Re: Albino Morels

We (a large group) found a bunch (maybe 20 or so) of these (or something resembling them) a couple of years ago near wolverine michigan in a spot we had searched a couple of days before. then the day after the rain in the same spot we started to find these in the morning but we had to go home that day. I do have some pictures on a backup drive, but not with me now.
