  3. Quite interesting. Is Fiddlehead the name of the plant? I've never seen anything like that

  4. This is a fern. Although there are many varieties of ferns, they all "unroll" their new fronds like this. The curled fronds is commonly called a "fiddlehead" or a "crozier." The former for the curled head stocks seen on fiddles and the latter for the curled headpiece on a shepherd's staff.

    These young unfurled leafs are harvested in many places of the world for consumption.
