Morchella, or morel mushrooms, are distinctive-looking mushrooms with a spongy texture and an earthy flavor. They are known by many different colloquial names, such as "dryland fish" because their outline resembles the shape of a fish when they're sliced lengthwise, breaded, and fried.
Since they only grow in the wild and are difficult to cultivate, these mushrooms are a gourmet delicacy and very expensive. Other factors, such as that they only grow in spring and are highly perishable, make it challenging to get them to the market and also contribute to their price. After Yartsa Gunbu, truffles, and Matsutake mushrooms, morel mushrooms are the most expensive mushrooms in the world.
Since morels cannot be farmed but have to be harvested from the woods, morel hunting is a popular springtime activity. Various festivals and competitions in the U.S. revolve around morel foragings, such as the century-old National Morel Mushroom Festival in Michigan and the Illinois State Morel Mushroom Hunting Championships.
Morel mushrooms have perplexed and fascinated mycologists for centuries due to problems they've had in determining the number of species in the genus, with some recognizing as little as three species and others as many as thirty. Today, the debate continues, and the Morchella genus remains the focus of extensive studies.
