Fungorobica – Bulgaria


CANTHARELLUS CIBARIUS grows in spring, summer and autumn in deciduous and coniferous forests, bearing fruit in relatively drier weather. It is found in forest thickets, forest glades and in moss, but there are always live trees growing nearby, with which the fungus coexists through a mycorrhizal symbiosis. It is also found along forest roads, along deserted paths and along the drain of streams formed during rain after their drainage. It is characteristic of CANTHARELLUS CIBARIUS that the volume of its fruiting varies dramatically each year. It appears at the end of May in the low forest plains and gradually ascends to the high parts of the mountains until the end of summer. This mushroom is very popular because of the wonderful taste qualities it possesses. It is suitable for consumption in fresh and dried state and is present in many recipes of different national cuisines. Seasonality: May – September.
