The False Morel... Don't Eat It!

The False Morel is poison... It has the same ingredient as Rocket Fuel in it... Some people eat these.. Stay away from them...

True morels have to be one of the easiest mushrooms to identify. I can't fathom how some folks can confuse falsies with true morels.


You're right though. Some can eat false and suffer no illness. Others will get deathly sick. No thanks on taking the chance.

I am no mushroom expert and the morel is the only one I know and pick. I bet I'm passing a lot of good eating up but until someone with some knowledge takes me out an helps me identify others I'll stick to the lovely morel.
