Fiddlehead Fern

Fiddledigging can be a great pleasure in springtime, and it is important to recognize that not all ferns are edible. The ostrich fern (Matteuccia struthiopteris) has both male and female plants, but the females only produce spores. The males produce spores and fertile fiddleheads, while the females only produce spores. It is extremely important to correctly identify your edible fern because it could be an ornamental plant that is poisonous if not identified well enough.

Fiddleheads are approximately 1 inch in diameter, have a smooth fern stem (not fuzzy), and also a deep “U”-shaped groove on the inside of the fern stem. Ostrich ferns are usually found in moist, rich soil near water sources. Look for the brown, papery scale-like covering on the uncoiled fern. If you find your Ostrich Fern has a series of fine hairs at the top instead of scales, chances are it is one of 2 other ferns that are similar to the Ostrich Fern, but poisonous. Take caution!

The ostrich fern is commonly found in many parts of North America. It often grows near water sources because it prefers moist soil conditions. The dark brown, scaly covering on the uncoiled fiddlehead is easily recognizable as well as the deep “U” shaped groove on the inside of the fern stem. The ostrich fern is a perennial plant and can be identified by its long, wide triangular fronds that grow up to six feet in height.

It's best to eat just the fiddleheads of the Ostrich fern while they are still uncoiled and firm. You can boil them or steam them for 10-12 minutes then season lightly with salt, pepper, and butter and enjoy!
