What Is A Fiddlehead?
A fiddlehead is the tender growth of the Matteuccia Struthiopteris or more commonly known as the ostrich fern. It is a green vegetable that is considered to be a nutritional wonder. The end of a fiddlehead is curled in a tight spiral. This spiral shape resembles the head of a fiddle, hence the name “fiddlehead.”

Foods that have an incredible array of health benefits that go well beyond just their nutrient value are considered superfoods. These foods are typically loaded with a combination of critical fatty acids, anti-oxidant phytonutrients and essential amino acids. Fiddlehead Greens picked in the wild are considered an extraordinary superfood.
