When T. citrina matures, it autodeliquesces, somewhat similar to Coprinus comatus. The inside (gleba) will turn black and liquidy. It also become quite sweet, and smells intensely of licorice! If you enjoy licorice, try adding tom T. citrina to a batch of fondue. But keep in mind the taste will be recycled everytime you eat something for the next 2-3 days.
