Fiddleheads are somewhat strange looking plants whose unraveling leaves resemble more than anything else the twisted head of a violin, hence their name. Immature leaves of 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. This is never shown in-game, but Captain Olimar's notes mention it.
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."
"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."
