Fiddlehead fern, also known as fiddlehead green, is the common name for a variety of ornamental ferns. Many of this charming species are edible and harvested and used as a vegetable. Health benefits include antioxidant properties, a high source of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, and high fiber and iron content. If leaves remain on the plant, each head of the Fiddlehead Fern will uncoil into a new petal. Since harvesting takes place in early spring before the fronds have the chance to fully open, they are cut quite close to ground level. They can be harvested in the spring if you would like to test their tastiness!
