Morels start to appear in early spring in the higher regions of the Kashmir valley and the northwestern Himalayas. The Morels grow in soil rich in organic matter, in loamy soil, in coniferous forests, broad-leaved forests, in open areas or grasslands in apple orchards, in burnt sites, river bottoms, and floodplains, even under dead decaying trees - Morels just can appear anywhere around in the Spring when the snow begins to melt and is accompanied with some precipitation. And now that we are in Spring, here we present to you the best of spring mushrooms from Kashmir - Black Morels being our spring stars!
