Fiddleheads are young, edible, fern shoots that are gathered when they are still curled. 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.

FIDDLEHEAD SEASON IS HERE!
Finally, the beautiful bushels of fresh unfurled fronds are rolling into Rumas!
We're excited to announce that this year, we've created a Web site fully dedicated to fresh fiddlehead orders: rumasfiddleheads.com ! We are also happy to announce that we've added a 2 lb. option to our usual 5 lb. and 10 lb. options.
The prices you see for each option include all shipping and handling for next day delivery. (Required to ensure the freshness of your fiddleheads!)
Remember, the fiddlehead season typically only lasts until early June - so, order soon!
