Too many people let it get too large. Best when very young, spines barely a half-inch or so.
For those who are worried about trying this easy to cultivate species, it takes on the flavor of anything it is cooked with. I have seen fruit bodies producing on sterile blocks within 28 days of inoculation, making this one of the fastest fruiting fungi around.
BTW, likely medicinal as well. The first time I tried it I was developing symptoms of multiple sclerosis. All feeling in one leg or another would stop, and I would fall in mid-stride. Had my first meal of H.e. in pan-fried rice within 3 months of start of symptoms. Symptoms stopped abruptly. Have not returned for 25 years.
