How the white fungus grows


White mushroom prefers not very thick coniferous forests</a>

White mushroom, he is a boletus, enjoys special love mushroom pickers. This is not accidental.

It is harvested for the winter in all possible ways - dried, salted, marinated. A good white mushroom is also in fried and boiled.

Sometimes the boletus grows to such a size that one mushroom is enough for dinner for the whole family.

These mushrooms grow in spruce and pine forests, birch groves and even in parks where broad-leaved trees predominate.



White mushrooms can be harvested almost all summer. They occur from the beginning of June to the middle, and even until the end of September. If the beginning of summer was warm and wet, you can safely take the basket and go looking for the white mushrooms. Find on the map of your locality a pine or fir forest, a mixed forest with a predominance of birches. Quite often white mushrooms can be found in juniper bushes. Suitable for your search and abandoned manor, where grow hornbeam and beeches.


There are several varieties of white fungus- spruce, pine, birch and others. The division is purely conditional, the fungi growing in different forests are somewhat different in color. The color can be from reddish brown to dark brown, almost black. But any foothill has a strong, thick butt and a smooth top. Borovik - a spongy mushroom, that is, on the lower part of the cap it has a sponge, and not plates. On average, it has a height of 12-15 cm, the hat of a mature fungus is about 25 cm in diameter. The young white fungus has a milky-white sponge, while the mature one has cream-colored sponge.


Arriving in the woods, look carefully. White mushrooms grow most often in the immediate vicinity of trees. They love and overgrown old paths. Sometimes they can be found on lawns. Boroviki are not always immediately noticeable, they hide in moss, and in the autumn they are difficult to see among the fallen leaves.


The satellites of white mushrooms are very oftenFly agarics, so, going out into the clearing, where here and there are bright red hats with white dots, look carefully. It is possible that next to you will see much less noticeable brown bulging hats on sturdy, thick legs. The leg is often wider at the bottom than the top.


Another sign of the presence of white mushrooms -anthill. It's just very easy to notice it. Look? That is next to the abode of "forest nurses". Ants almost always settle where the mycelium of white mushrooms is underground. And if you see a medicinal herb called "whiteness" in the clearing, then this will also be an occasion to look more closely under your feet. White mushrooms are very fond of this medicinal plant.


Having found out a white mushroom, carefully look underlegs. It is very likely that you will find several more pieces at the same place or somewhere side by side. Sometimes in pine forests in a small area you can find 15-20 white mushrooms. Large colonies of mushrooms can be found in birch groves.
