Turkey Tail – Shelf Fungus – Trametes versicolor
Turkey Tail has a spoon or cup shape, up to four inches wide, and it is very colorful. Its colors can range from brown, white, tan, orange, red, or purple — or all these colors at once.
Like other fungi, Turkey Tail is the name for the part that you see. Most of the fungus is inside the bark of the log. The “tail” that you see is like the “flower” of the fungus.
These “blooms” grow from May to December. Turkey Tails can last several years.
Grow on dead or dying wood, especially oaks. They are also known to grow from wounds in a tree.
