The earlier ones were not frost bit that I know of.

Although these had a fishy smell to them and they left my fingers smelling the same way after handling.

tend to smell fishy? or just kind of unappetizing?

I tried eating these from an earlier fruiting and they were not good at all. I couldn’t finish swallowing it.
