Longing more Matsutake

7 Oct


It has been 12 days since I last visited my favorite White Matsutake grounds so after work I dropped in on my way home to see if any new ones have emerged in the dry weather we’ve been having.


I suspect the drier than usual soil conditions may have something to do with the long stems you are seeing on these White Matsutakes.


The nights have been approaching frost so I was pleased to see quite a few fresh mushrooms in good shape, a nice after work gathering for sure. ciao

      They may? The White Matsutake likes mature hemlock, spruce and jack pine especially near lakes, brooks and even the drier edges of bogs. Thick moss hummocks and bare needle duff are favorite ground covers. Their fruiting season ends in our area in a couple weeks.
