Hesse: Mushroom hunters can also find what they are looking for in the heat

Offenbach (dpa/lhe) - Despite the heat and drought, mushroom pickers can already find what they are looking for. "If you know a bit, you can find something," reported the owner of a mushroom school in Offenbach, Dietmar Krüger. For example, fungi feeding on dead wood or living trees would have no problem with the current weather conditions. They took the water stored there from the wood. Among them are good edible mushrooms such as the yellow-orange sulfur polypore. "But you have to know what you're doing with the trees," warned the expert. "There's no getting around a mushroom determination."

The main season for mushroom pickers, who are usually looking for porcini mushrooms, chanterelles or chestnuts, begins around September. Despite the current weather conditions, Krüger does not see completely black for them either. "The fungus is in the ground. What we see are its fruiting bodies and they need water to form," he explained. And should it rain in September, they would literally shoot out of the ground like mushrooms.
