Try making a scalp (surface section) off the stipe right at the border between the two colors. Most likely it won’t show anything interesting, but perhaps there is some difference in the tissue there. It seems like the color is a deterministic artifact of development (since it looks like all the fruitbodies have it).

Taste: Peppery.
