Morchella deliciosa, the White Morel, is a widespread
species whose appearance marks the beginning of the end of morel season.
Actually, like the black morels, there is a confusing array of morels that
gather together under the name of white morel. They are characterized by
having white ridges, at least when young. They can show up in gardens,
under fruit trees, in woods, on sand. In California they can appear practically
year-round. They are delectable, of course, but they must be cooked.
