They are quite good. So good in fact that it can be difficult to preserve good herbarium specimens.

They are very popular among the locals, the other day a van driving ahead of us hit the breaks and someone jumped out and grabbed one that was growing by the side of the road. Sometimes dishes with these mushrooms are on the menu at restaurants, usually under the name tecomate or caesarea.

have you tried any of these Mexican caesars, Alan?
