    Fresh wild Chinese Morel, Morchella

    Morels, with the Latin name Morchella esculenta, is a genus of edible sac fungi closely related to anatomically simpler cup fungi in the order Pezizales (division Ascomycota). These distinctive fungi have a honeycomb appearance due to the network of ridges with pits composing their caps. Morels are prized by gourmet cooks, particularly in French cuisine. Although there have been efforts to cultivate morels, they’re extremely difficult to farm, meaning they must be foraged and harvested from where they naturally grow.
