Question Fall Morels

Has anybody started looking for fall morels yet? My sister and I have never looked in the fall, but have heard they do grow in Michigan in the fall so we want to give it a go. Not sure when to start. Went out yesterday, but found nothing.

False. They don't come up in the fall RuthAnn.

Some novices think they see them, but it always some other type of mushroom of non-edible type, stinkhorns and the like, that really doesn't look like a morel except to an excited newbie. Morel hunting in the fall is a lot like the old Snipe hunting joke played on someone foolish enough to fall for it.

There are lots of other good mushrooms in the fall though, so study up on them and you will be surprised at the bounty that can be had.

Re: Fall Morels

This is a quote from Mushroom Expert Michael Kuo, however, they are also being found now in parts of California, thru Summer and Fall according to Fungi Magazine editor / owner Britt Bunyard

I have studied one collection of Morchella rufobrunnea from central Michigan, where the species appeared in an urban garden in October; it appears to represent an escape from a nearby facility where morels are commercially cultivated.

This Morel is now known as the " Mulch Morel " since it shows up in cultivated areas, and can show up at any time of the year.

There are some stinkhorns that look like morels. I have never heard of fall morels in Michigan.

There really is a bird called a snipe.

The real Snipe extremely difficult to catch.

Yes, there are real snipes Jochs, but you usually hunt them with a gun and not with a bag held in front of pee'd upon shoes. LOL

I found some morchella rufobrunnea growing in my old CA garden one spring, and the next year in a pathway along a fence nearby. They are oddly colored, but definitely a morel.

Now, as far as "Fall Morels" go, could this just be a bastardization of "False Morels"?
