Cantharellus mushrooms

Cantharellus is a genus with many delicious and popular edible mushrooms.

It is a mycorrhizal edible fungus, meaning it forms symbiotic associations with plants, making it very challenging to cultivate.

Caution must be used when identifying chanterelles for consumption; lookalikes, such as the Jack-O-Lantern, can make a person very ill.

Still, the yellow chanterelle is one of the most recognized edible mushrooms and can be found in Asia, Europe, North America and Australia.
