183 A pair of fiddleheads

A fiddlehead fern unrolls a new frond. The name arises from the similarity to the tuning head of a fiddle or bass violin with its tuning pegs. This tightly coiled tip of fern is actually a delicacy that tastes like a cross between asparagus and young spinach. This one grows in the rainforest near the active volcano, Kilauea in the Hawai’ian Volcanoes National Park, on the big Island of Hawai’i.
