(various Morchella species)
These superb edibles can be found growing under certain trees. Apple, cherry, pine, sycamore, and tulip poplar are great candidates, as well as dead or dying elm and ash. True morels are completely hollow on the inside, unlike their toxic look alikes, which may have a folded or web-like structure running from the stem to the cap.
Fiddleheads refer to the edible unfurled fronds of the Ostrich Fern. These can be identified by their brown, papery sheath, traces of which remain even as they unfurl. They also possess a deep ridge that runs the length of the inside of each frond. One should be careful to harvest less than half of any given cluster, which will ensure the future health of the plant.
