Observation 278038: Agaricus augustus Fr.

Great almond smell!

This is the first time I have found The Prince. After my first sample, I hope to find plenty more!


No staining on cut flesh. Cap piece at bottom: minor yellow bruising on edge, and slow yellowing from KOH.
One small mushroom, fried in butter, for a test sample. Absolutely fantastic!

you don’t even need a dipping sauce, just salt!

Thanks Debbie.

As they age, I hear they also gain maggots, too!

The one I cooked up yesterday, was sweet and almondy.

nice finds!

as this mushroom ages it loses the almondy odor and gets more of a rich mushroomy odor. these of course are babies.

fun fungal finds of summer.
