Fungorobica – Bulgaria


MARASMIUS OREADES is often found in grass in pastures, meadows, fields and gardens and is a prized edible mushroom. It is easily recognized and grows in the same places every year (as long as there is enough moisture) and in large groups. Some groups expand so much that they form so-called “self-savage circles.” It is sold fresh, dried and pickled. Coloration varies with humidity. In dry conditions the color is pale cream and darkens with increasing moisture to pale brown. There is often variation between the color in the center and that in the surroundings especially in wet circumstances. The center is in the form of a pimple in the flat, developed googles. The shape of young mushrooms is bell-shaped. The maximum diameter is 5 to 6 cm.

Available fresh and frozen.
