The morel (Morchella) is a genus of edible cup fungi.
They produce highly porous ascocarps, prized by gourmet cooks, particularly for French cuisine.
The morel grows abundantly in the two and sometimes three years immediately following a forest fire, but where fire suppression is practiced, may grow regularly though in small amount in the same spot year after year.
This is not to be confused with the false morel, which is similar in appearance but extremely poisonous.
