Welcome to Fresh Fiddleheads

Fiddleheads are young, edible, fern shoots that are gathered when they are still curled. They are very similar in shape to the head of a violin, hence their name. These greens are nutritious – high in vitamin A, vitamin C & iron and are a good source of Potassium. They are also low in calories, fat and cholesterol.
No other vegetable matches the exquisite form and delicious flavor of fresh Fiddleheads. Some describe it as a cross between asparagus and broccoli; others say it is a combination of asparagus and mushroom. The flavor of fiddleheads goes well with cheeses, tomato sauces and oriental cuisine.
Fiddleheads are a seasonal wild vegetable made available mostly in the USA and Canada.
