Description

Fiddlehead Ferns - Matteuccia struthiopteris  For Sale Affordable, Grower Direct Prices Tennessee Wholesale Nursery

Fiddlehead fern is native to northern woodlands where they grow near streams, rivers and other areas that feature moist soil. The ferns' delicate fronds, varied texture, and fiddle-shaped tops are excellent additions to shade gardens, tree-lined walkways, and border areas. These plants enjoy light soils that are heavy with debris. As a result, planting a group of Fiddlehead fern near a large tree is beneficial to both plants.

If your landscape includes tree stumps, then plant a cluster of fern near them. The nutrients released as the stump breaks down helps ferns grow. As fiddlehead fern grow, their root systems assist in breaking down stumps and other debris, while keeping moss, mushrooms, and weeds at bay. Fiddlehead fern is also the right choice for landscapes with drainage issues, as these plants relish and help to control extra moisture.

These plants grow in three- to twelve- plant clusters. They emerge in early spring, revealing tight, U-shaped coils covered with paper-like brown leaves. These coverings fall back as the middle portion of the soft-stemmed plant uncoils, revealing delicate, feathery fronds. Fiddlehead fern is related to Ostrich fern, and once you see the fern's "plumage" you will understand why it received that name.

Easy to maintain and highly decorative, these plants are also grown indoors. Apartment-dwellers and homeowners provide Fiddlehead fern with light, fertile soil and shade. In return, the arching fronds and elegant silhouettes provide luxurious green elements throughout the year.

Fiddlehead ferns are a good sign of spring.
In some areas of the Northeastern United States, Fiddlehead fern is considered a spring delicacy and are harvested and eaten before the coils unfurl. Though they are found in the wild, many people choose to grow their own. They have a bright green color, a snappy texture (somewhat like green beans) and a woodsy taste ( similar to asparagus). Fiddleheads should not be eaten raw.

Fiddlehead Fern 

An increasingly popular botanical, the name “Fiddlehead Fern” may refer to any of a variety of edible fern species, including the Bracken, Ostrich, Shield, and Lady Fern, whose foliage is sought out for consumption. Thriving along the banks of streams or wetlands, Fiddlehead Ferns are also commonly found in well-drained, moist soils at the shady periphery of forests or wooded areas. Harvested in the early-to-late spring, the fiddles of this plant are the tightly curled fronds, or young leaves, that emerge during this time. These fronds found at the end of stalks that erupt from the rhizome, growing 10-12 inches in height. When harvested, the fiddles must be scraped or washed to remove the scaly, brown husks that protect the new leaves before being consumed. Fiddles that have aged to the point of unfurling should not harvest. 

 

 Considered a delicacy in many regions, Fiddlehead Ferns have described as crunchy in texture and similar in taste to green beans or asparagus. Rich in antioxidants Vitamin-A and carotene, as well as the essential fatty acids Omega-3 and Omega-6, these ferns may also contain beneficial amounts of Vitamin C, copper, iron, manganese, and potassium. Depending on personal taste and preference, Fiddlehead Ferns can be prepared in a variety of ways; fiddles may be steamed, blanched, sauteed, or stir-fried. It may be utilized as a component of seafood dishes, pasta dishes, vegetable dishes, or salads.
