Morchella esculenta, commonly known as the white morel mushroom, is a species of edible mushroom that belongs to the family Morchellaceae. It is one of the most highly sought-after wild mushrooms in the culinary world, known for its unique shape and earthy, nutty flavor.

Morel mushrooms are typically found in forested areas, particularly around the base of trees, and they usually appear in the spring. However, depending on the geographical location, they may also be found in the fall. These mushrooms are native to North America, Europe, and Asia, and can be found in temperate regions worldwide.

The fruiting body of the morel mushroom is distinctive, with a conical or bell-shaped cap that is covered in ridges and pits that resemble a honeycomb. The cap can be anywhere from 2 to 10 centimeters in height, and the entire mushroom can range in color from light beige to dark brown. Morels are hollow on the inside, and their unique appearance and flavor have made them a favorite among chefs and food enthusiasts alike.

Morel mushrooms are used in a variety of culinary dishes, including soups, sauces, and sautés, and are particularly popular in French cuisine. They are also often dried and used as a seasoning. However, it is important to note that while morels are edible and considered a delicacy, they should be cooked thoroughly before consuming. Raw or undercooked morels contain small amounts of toxins that can cause gastrointestinal distress, including nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.

The scientific name for the morel mushroom, Morchella esculenta, comes from the Latin word “morchella,” meaning “little morsel,” and “esculenta,” meaning “edible.” Other common names for this mushroom include sponge mushroom, honeycomb morel, and true morel.

In addition to their culinary uses, morels are also being studied for their potential medicinal properties. Some research suggests that morels may have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, and could potentially be used in the treatment of certain diseases. However, more research is needed to fully understand the potential health benefits of this mushroom. ©


IDEAL GROWING CONDITIONS: White Morel – Morchella esculenta

White morel need to be grow outdoors, there are some places growing them indoors but the technique is highly secretive.

We recommend inoculating some hardwood substrate with your liquid culture, allowing the mycelium to colonise the substrate.

When the substrate is ready, it can be planted into the earth with coniferous trees such as spruce, pine, and fir.

Morel are known to form symbiotic relationships with trees, and the White morel (Morchella esculenta) is no exception. The exact nature of this relationship is not yet fully understood, but it is believed that the mycelium of Morchella fungi form a mutualistic association with the roots of trees, exchanging nutrients and minerals with the tree in exchange for carbohydrates.

This symbiotic relationship is known as mycorrhizae, and it is a mutually beneficial association between the fungus and the plant. The fungus provides the tree with nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorus, which it is able to extract from the soil more efficiently than the tree’s roots can on their own. In return, the tree provides the fungus with carbohydrates produced through photosynthesis.

It is believed that the mycorrhizal association between Morchella fungi and trees is important for the growth and survival of both organisms. In addition, some studies have suggested that the presence of certain tree species can influence the abundance and distribution of Morchella fungi in a particular ecosystem. ©

Liquid culture is a a nutrient rich broth made up of distilled water, mixed with light malt extract dextrose and honey to create a mix for the mycelium to feed on. You can think of mycelium as the mushroom seed, this can then be used to inoculate a grow kit or substrate mix to start grow mushrooms.

We regularly test all of our liquid cultures on agar and grain to guarantee you only get the highest quality culture.


Different mushrooms require different care and conditions to grow but with the right conditions and coupled with our liquid cultures and grow kits you can grow your own mushroom easy! We offer a wide variety of easy to use grow kits and mushroom growing substrates. We’ve done all the hard work to save you the time and energy. By growing mushrooms in bags this way, you can have more control over the environment, throughout the whole growing cycle, than if you were to grow outside.
