|Morchella esculenta? Fuji F11|
We often think of fruits as being pleasant to look at and delicious; apples, bananas (yum!) etc. There are many other fruiting bodies however and I almost trod on one today; not immediately pretty but certainly has a 'distinctive charm'.
I am no mycologist and so would rather let this chap set spores than attempt to eat it. It does resemble Morchella esculenta which is considered by many a delecacy, but it could be others too which are not so pleasant.
I think I will keep an eye out for more and consult a chap in the know... meanwhile, if it does sow spores and is good to eat, I know where there may be a useful crop next spring :)
