Some Boletus mushrooms are said to be tasty, but I caution people not to pick and eat any mushroom unless you are an expert or have an expert’s approval. Many lookalikes can make you sick or even be deadly.
This mushroom was one of many growing in our woods in Green Lane, PA. The picture was taken August 1, 2008; the forest is mainly hardwoods.
