Where do Fiddleheads Grow?

Fiddleheads grow in Western Massachusetts, Vermont, Maine & Eastern Parts of Canada. Thousands of pounds of Fiddleheads are picked daily and arrive washed and unwashed to Ruma Fruit & Produce in Everett, MA. Since we are close to the main growing areas of some the finest Fiddlehead fields in North America, we are able to consistently sell the 1st and last rounds of fiddlehead crops to our customers.

When most fiddlehead sellers are struggling to find crops, Jim Ruma has had a 15 year partnership with our Canadian growers as well as a long history with many Vermont, Maine, Massachusetts, and Connecticut Fiddlehead pickers. We are always on the look out for new fiddlehead pickers within New England and will arrange trucking for Fiddleheads to arrive at Ruma Fruit for our Fiddlehead Buyers.

We purchase our fiddleheads from one of the largest Fiddlehead Suppliers in Canada as well as from first time pickers throughout the Northeast. We consistently have 5000 – 20,000 lbs of Fiddlehead crop arriving daily and try our best to assure that we deliver our product fresh and in a timely manor through overnight delivery services.
