The season has come to a close. Check back next Spring for when Fiddleheads are available again.
Fiddleheads are young, edible, fern shoots that are gathered when they are still curled. These greens are high in vitamins A and C and are a good source of iron and potassium. Some describe this delicious flavor as a cross between asparagus and broccoli.
These tightly furled fronds of baby ferns are carefully harvested during a short season which typically begins in April and ends in June.
