The time of year it fruits depends on the location

Largent p. 278 says “Oregon mid March to Late April, Idaho mid June, Wyoming late July to late August”. Most saprotrophs can fruit pretty much any time it rains, but come out in lesser numbers than they do when they are in season.

That E. vernum is NOT a strictly spring fruiter? Or does this variety probably deserve its own epithet?
