this mushroom picking always scared the sh1t out of me. One wrong mushroom and poof! a whole family can die. There were always horror stories whispered on the subject.
Yeah, that's why family never collect this one. There is other very confusing mushroom when its young and not grew up - Kania:
Some ppl mistaken it for muchomor sromotnikowy.
it takes a lot skill and knowledge to pick wild mushrooms. There are plenty of poisonous mushrooms. I never heard of anybody dying, but there could be some serious belly disturbance if you know what I mean...it is important to really know the stuff.
Well I heard that in Poland there are really few poisoning mushrooms. Most of them is just bitter in taste thats why some species are not collected.
There are only few species collected and dont need too much knowledge to pick mushrooms, just to abide the old rule: if you are not sure its better to throw out a muchroom from your basket.
Most popular mushrooms in Poland:
Kurka (pieprznik jadalny)
Prawdziwek (borowik szlachetny)
