Fiddleheads typically first appear each year in the early spring from March through May. Although the word "fiddlehead" could refer to any fern shoots, most are inedible and two varieties, Western lady fern fiddleheads and Eastern ostrich fern fiddleheads are considered to be the choicest of the edible ferns.
These tender little spirals are harvested by snapping them off within an inch or two of the ground as soon as they appear. Fiddleheads are a rich, deep green color and are about 2 inches long and 1-1/2 inches in diameter. Their flavor has been frequently described as a blend of asparagus, green bean and artichoke, but in fact, they possess a wonderful and wild flavor all their own.
Please remember: supplies of wild-harvested products are frequently limited and we are not always able to guarantee delivery on specific dates.
While we'll do our best to honor requested delivery dates, as always, wild products are available on a first come, first serve basis and orders are shipped in the order in which they were received.
