Description

Extremely common and invasive plant. Leaves have a sharp, garlicky odor. Garlic mustard is nutritious, and though strongly flavored, makes a decent pesto, especially when mixed half with parsley or basil. Pick as early in the year as possible, before the plants flower and the leaves become more bitter.

The stem is whitish with tiny granules of the same color. Like all true morels, it is hollow from top to bottom.
