I am amazed by how well those things rehydrate, They looked so dried in the first post. I am surprised by how freaking big they get. Thank for posting this.

Thank you.

I appreciate you’re reply. I’m currently looking for interesting spring time fruits in my area. I’m also on the pnw coast farther south.

Spring and fall

Bot spring and fall have good potential for producing fruits, but for the most part up here they tend to enjoy the spring more. Not cold temps, but not too warm either. Highs lately have been between 50-70°F with lows in the high 30- high 40’s°F

Cold weather?

Do these come up when it’s cold, or is it more of a spring fruit?

A short clip I took today while out and about. A bit short, but it was raining pretty hard. Enjoy, and change quality to HD

Long time no see.
Would you mind if I posted these on the shroomey? If you have no plans to do it would you mind if I did? If you want I could post that anonymous found them, if you want to be incognito.
