mushnoob Posted November 17, 2022 Report Share Posted November 17, 2022 Friend called me to get some chanterelles from the mixed conifer forest near Trinidad California. He's been eating them for a few days so they're not toxic, but I was hesitant. They're nothing like the golden chanterelles I've picked up in Washington, these more like "mushroom" mushrooms, not the very distinct rubbery chanterelle shape/texture. I didn't eat any because they seem to have real gills and not those gill-like ridges. But the strange thing, these smell just like apricots. To me, golden chanterelles are fruity smelling but not apricot, while these smell just like them. I looked everywhere online for another type of mushroom that these could be but if you put apricot in the search it comes back as chanterelles. Are they just a different species of chants or something else? Sorry for the pics I can go back out with a real camera if needed. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
