They are puff balls but not very big, I also have a bunch in the yard. I do not like there flavor so I do not bother with them and cannot understand anyone comparing them to morels. The giant puff balls came out last month I only had two, didn't bother with then either. When the puffballs puff they are past their prime and usually have lots of bugs by then. If you want to eat them, which I do not, you need to get them very early, they get infested with bugs very, very quickly.

The truth and only the truth-AS ONLY I CAN SEE IT

I usally anly go for the giant ones. They will be any size from a grapefruit to a basketball and other puff balls will as small as a gulfball. If you cut into them and see any yellow just trash them. That yellow means that they are past their prime. But I agree with JeffE on that they taste great in thier prime. Once saw a guy with the cab of his truck full of them. He had pulled off the road and smelled them they were so thick. I also really like them in stew. They are meaty enough to cook up in stew without losing their own flavor.

Just enjoying the preparation.
