The fiddlehead fern is a nice winter plant. Some cultures harvest the small plants to eat as a vegetable. Blooms and comes up in early spring.   Good source of vitamin A and C. The plant needs to be cooked and can’t be eaten raw or it can cause sickness. This fern normally sticks around until the last frost. The plant grows about 4 feet long. The plant also prefers partial shade to keep it moist.

A young, edible, tightly coiled fern frond that resembles the spiral end of a violin. Fiddlehead ferns are a rich, deep green color and are about 2 inches long and 11⁄2 inches in diameter. They have a flavor akin to an asparagus-green bean-okra cross and a texture that's appealingly chewy.
