They are of a dark brownish red color and are heavily textured due to a porous surface that resembles a malformed cauliflower. The cap can grow up to six inches wide and the height is usually about four inches. The stem is an off-white color. Older morels will have darker, sometimes blackened ridges. Eating these mushrooms can be seriously detrimental to your health due to the presence of a toxin known as monmethylhydrazine, or MMH.
