Fiddleheads are somewhat strange looking plants whose unraveling leaves resemble more than anything else the twisted head of a violin, hence their name. Members of the fern family, fiddleheads are common in watery or damp environments and are used as scenery in many caves. Like real-world ferns, fiddleheads reproduce via the release of spores rather than using pollen and seeds.


Olimar's Notes

"At first glance, this plant resembles the spring used in the ship's sub-light engine. Many of its most primitive characteristics remain intact, including its habit of spreading through the dispersal of spores."

Louie's Notes

"Sun-dry the leaves for several days, then grind them with a mortar and pestle. The resulting herb grants an aromatic, earthy flavor to mutton and poultry dishes."

Nintendo Player's Guide

"The swirl at the top of the fiddlehead gives the plant its name. In his notes, Olimar remarks that the fiddle looks like the spring from the ships sub-light engine."
