The parasol mushroom is a choice edible with a beautiful brown, scaled cap. The impressive cap can reach up to 30 cm in diameter. The mushroom thrives in bright places at the edge of deciduous and coniferous forests as well as on grazed meadows. Create a similar environment for your grow patch, preferably with sandy soil. The mushroom grows during the summer and autumn. It occurs naturally in the southern and middle parts of Sweden.
1 kg of mycelium grown on organic rye berries. Instructions available in the file below.
Note that the parasol mushrooms can be mistaken for poisonous amanitas (fly agarics), such as the panther cap mushroom -Amanita pantherina, and the royal fly agaric -Amanita muscaria var. regalis. A good rule of thumb to avoid a mix up is that the cap of the parasol mushroom has dark scales on a light background while the cap of the fly agarics has light scales on a dark background. There are several similar parasol mushrooms, but none of the species found in Sweden are known to be poisonous. For toxic look alikes in other countries, please investigate thoroughly.
