    I have some morels that I have picked but am not to sure on how to go about holding them and then shipping. I keep seeing auctions on ebay for morels that have been picked and the seller will ship untouched. My question is once I’ve picked them how do I hold handle store them for the 24 hours after my auction ends and how do I ship them? Should I just put the, in a box and send them out? Or should I put them in a paper bag and then in a box?

    I don’t understand how people could pick them , then send them priority mail 2 to 3 days later they would arrive. This is 4 days from when they were picked. Wouldn’t they be all mush by then? Any suggestions advice is greatly appreciated.

    <span style="color: blue">Here is how I have sent them in the past
    first off never wash them , I let them sit out and dry a little bit and then put news paper in the bottom of a priority mail box, I take a pen or pencil and poke a boat load of holes in the box so they can breath..just make sure to say that you are not Responsible for snail mail.or pay the big bucks for shipping!
    Oh and as far as waiting for the auction to end you can just put them in a paper bag in the fridge
    I just run a one day auction

    Good luck!</span>
