~Morels. We have very beautiful ones all week from Oregon.
Still a slow start, due to cold weather and snow over much of the areas, but it
is warming up and supply should increase and price should drop.
The season should last at least until mid-June. They could be around as late
as mid- August.
~Porcinis. We may have for Tuesday delivery from South Africa, if all goes well.
Limited quantities. This may be the last of the season from S. Africa.
The Oregon season should start now in May, which is their usual season.
The weather decides.
~Mousserons. We have a good supply. Excellent quality. Clean and dry. Should be easy
to clean. From Bulgaria. Normally available until end of June.
~St. George's. (Scientific name: Tricholoma Georgii. Not related at all to Mousserons.)
Similar flavor to Canary or Charbonnier: Nutty / freshly ground flower.
Mild. Pleasant. Also from Bulgaria and potentially around until end of
~Chanterelles / Girolles. Finally back for Thursday delivery, if all goes well. (We
have stayed away from the Moroccan, since the quality has been very
low and the shelf life too short.) From Bulgaria. Very small: 1/2 inch to
1 inch long. Have been washed and fandried.
Season: Should be around all summer from Europe and then from Oregon
and the Westcoast. Usually uninterrupted from now until mid to late
~Summer Truffles. First of the season from France for Tuesday delivery.
Season should last until end of August/early September.
Cultivated Mushrooms: Available yearround, except for some rare growing problems.
Unfortunately that is the case for Pioppinos, which are not available at least through Wednesday. Also Nebrodinis/Abalone from California are short.
~Fiddlehead Ferns. We have excellent ones from Maine available until early June.
~Ramps. From Michigan. Probably the last of the season. However, we will have the
bulbs in a few weeks. Wild.
~Rhubarb. Very local. (Westchester). Available a few more weeks. Organic.
~Nettle Tops. Westchester and Oregon. Available to mid to late June. Wild.
~Fresh Green Almonds: California. Available until end of July.
