Have been voraciously hunting morels in the bush, and had a great find this morning.
Upon returning to town this evening, attended a friend's place to collect a pile of morels growing in a garden plot.
So interesting to see how different the structure of each appears - any insight? Just variation on species? We cooked and ate specimens from both piles tonight and they have distinctly different flavours!

Wild foraged on the left, garden plot on the right. Thanks for any insight!

Erm, with the way the photo loaded, let's rephrase; wild foraged on the bottom, garden plot ontop!

Sonny is correct except the latin names. The yellow one is now called Morchella Americanum. The black one could be one of several different black ones
