I think the violet colored coral is edible but I didn't harvest it.
These are definitely chanterelles. With all the rain we’ve had in NJ and the heat, I’ve found them growing in clusters and the caps are not your standard “vase” shape. Almost like cauliflower. But they are all smooth chants thus far. Some being huge and incredibly fresh and delicious.Found these today, didn't pick anything. I just can't tell the difference between false chants and real ones. Jack o laterns grow on wood these are coming from dirt
Been out a few times in the last week or so . Finding trumpets, chants , milkies, old mans , and Evan some cinnabars .Cool picture!! Thanks for sharing.
SquirrelKing, It's been that way for me the last few years. If they only have a couple of little holes in the stem I take them but a lot of what I find has the whole stem ate hollow. What area are you in, here in Snyder co. everything is dried up right now. Hoping for some rain next week.Found a bunch of chants also but all buggy . Can’t seem to find chants without any residents. Lol
