boletus_edulis2.jpgBoletus edulis is a forest fungus. It does not occur through meadows and pastures, and although they are thoroughly enriched. Always seek the neighborhood of trees or shrubs at least.

Mushrooms begin to appear in warm and rainy weather in May. But the best mushrooms appear after the first autumn rains warm irrigation. They rasttat slower than other fungi. And another is typical of them. Stalk grows faster than the cap. So shortly after the show above the ground, somehow seem abnormally developed, with a small head on topchesta large, well-fed that block. Gradually raised the cap also begins to dissolve after a while the sponge will face throughout their growth - as a hood with fuzzy round loaf (and say so somewhere somunka), sometimes by large sunflower on a powerful punch, with some large high specimens to 15 and even up to ten thick inches.

Boletus edulis (Boletus edulis) is one of the most common and popular mushroom in the country. Also called sword sponge. Often "castaneus" refers to this fungus.

In young specimens the stem is thick and fleshy and often several times greater than itself hood. The most subtle part is always up to tubes, which also is Mesh color. Tubes are white, but later became pale yellow. The color of young hoods creamy. With the aging of the fruit body cap expands, it becomes flat and pokafenyava. The oldest specimens are olive tubes. This is also the color of the spore pollen. The meat is always white. The amount of the cap is up to 25 centimeters. The stem grows to 20 cm high. Mass of the entire sponge can reach and even exceed 2 kg.

This is most easily find in our wild mushroom. It is easy to recognize, good for consumption, easy storage and desired to import from other European countries. High-quality young mushrooms are considered a delicacy and have high prices, but relatively difficult to find without infestations of larvae.

Fungus is found most often in coniferous forests, but no exception and deciduous. It grows in symbiosis with trees.

Collected annually zedno with chanterelle in the Rhodope Mountains of thousands of Gypsies and enthusiastic mushrooms. Small villages of tents to the collector is formed on the lawns around the feed-points. The seasonal yield, however, often varies, and the purchasing price.

Traditionally, the mushrooms are cut into thin slices, then that rank on canvas or nylon drying in the sun. Consumed fresh.

Boletus edulis can be confused with edible:

* Pine castaneus (B. pinophilus);
* Yellow castaneus (B. appendiculatus);
* Bronze castaneus (B. aereus) and
* Kanelenokafyava castaneus (Xerocomus badius).

Mushrooms with orange or red meat bruising and tubing should be avoided. They are diabolical mushroom (B. satanas), purpurnochervena castaneus (B. rhodoxanthus), beautiful castaneus (B. calopus), Boletus erythropus (B. erythropus) and fiery castaneus (B. luridus). Bitter castaneus (Tylopilus felleus) is not poisonous, but it is unpleasant bitter taste.
