The morel mushroom is a delicacy around the world and many people will pay top dollar to have them. This organism only comes around for a few months each year, but when it does, people search all over the place (or at least where they think they can be found) to get some of these amazing mushrooms of their own. But have you ever taken the time to think about how these delicious mushrooms grow and live in the wild as well as how they live amongst other species? Today you will find out.
