Origin

Unknown

Description

Average fruit body heights reach six to eight inches with caps averaging one to three inches in diameter during later flushes. When growing in cooler temperatures, it usually always produces a very beautiful color caramel cap and stems. When growing in warmer temperatures, it's color changes to a more golden color at times. The stems are generally very thick, and it produces some large caps. Its a very heavy spore depositor. It also drops a very thick veil.

Cultivation Info

A very versatile cubensis, loved by many for how easy it is to grow. Adapting and growing in such a wide range of temperature conditions and substrates in nature. The B has been witnessed growing outdoors in nature fruiting several times in a wide range of temps and substrates. Several times one winter, night time low of 45F, day high of 60F, the B just flourished. Spring/summer, low of 75F, high of 90F, the B once again fruited beautifully. Not a super fast colonizer, its speed is average. The B strain is highly sought after due to the larger than average fruit sizes, some reportedly reaching up to 14 inches in length. When compared to other P. cubensis strains, the B is often considered a giant fruiter. Very large fruits can be expected on more nutrient rich substrates such cased grains, manure, compost and straw.

History

It was discovered by a grower that went by Mr. G. There was a lot of controversy surrounding this mushroom for so long because Mr. G started off by telling everyone it was an azure/cubensis hybrid. Although at times it does grow some broadly umbonate caps like p. azurescens, it is just a unique cubensis.
