Morel mushroom season starting soon

Posted: Updated:

IOWA (WHO)  — WHO, our sister station in Des Moines, reported that morel mushroom hunters will have to wait a bit before they can start picking.

The station says this year’s season has been delayed because of cold temperatures and a late snow. Hunters see morels when the soil is about 50 degrees.

But here's the good news....

That temperature is getting closer! WHOtv.com says, "it may still be about a week or so until morels can be found on normal paths, but that doesn’t mean hunters can’t start their search!"
