Contamination or just bruising?
    #1538023 - 05/10/03 11:58 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

Hi,

A friend of a friend asked me to post this question:
He has tried growing mushrooms for first time using a 'growbox' and has had success so far.
He unexpectedly had to harvest this morning and the mushrooms seem to be healthy:

But while trying to pick the ones that grew on the sides of the casing he noticed that the colonized part of the growbox took on a slightly blueish color, just like the mushrooms got where he touched them, in contrast to the bottom layer and the fluff that grew on top, which were bright white:

He now is unsure if this is just bruising or some kind of contamination and if the harvested mushrooms are safe to eat.

I hope someone here can help my friend...

Looks just like bruising.

Enjoy your meal!

I'd say bruising as well

Like everybody said, bruising.
