I find dozens every summer in pine mulch. Sometimes they can taste like an artichoke, and sometimes they are bitter and off-putting. Mostly though, the insects LOVE them there, so I am only afforded a couple a season. Even if you get to them right away they have already started the tunneling.

Rare this year

This one is not in the best shape, but it was still cool to find it. A few years ago I picked dozens of these at Strouds Run, but for the last few years they have been few and far between.

nice find.

Very nice find, I have only found them twice, once in WV at Greenbrier and once in New York at Letchworth.
