Host: I've heard whispers about the financial support your government receives from the drug industry.
Peruvian: Well, the irony of this, of course, is that this money, which is in the billions, is coming from your country. You see, you are the major purchaser of our national product, which is of course cocaine.
Host: On one hand, you're saying the United States government is spending millions of dollars to eliminate the flow of drugs onto our streets. At the same time, we are doing business with the very same goverment that is flooding our streets with cocaine.
Peruvian: Mmm-hmm, si, si. Let me show you a few other characters that are involved in this tragic comedy.

That first one is in such poor shape that I can't confirm from the photo that it's a mushroom, let alone what kind. It's certainly past it's eat-by date, and may be past its identify-by date. If you want an ID on it you'll need to provide a description (see the sticky threads in this forum for details). A spore print is likely to be important in the ID.

The second one sounds like a puffball or earthball. Cut it in half from top to bottom and let us see what the inside looks like. Also let us know if it's tough to cut or it changes color (bruises) or has a distinctive odor.

Happy mushrooming!

That's a puffball, probably from the genus Calvatia. The fact that it's white all the way through means it's still good to eat. They're generally sliced and fried. They don't have a strong flavor, and the texture is sort of like eggplant, but they're OK. I can't tell how big your puffball is, but I've seen them up to roughly basketball size, and I've seen photographs of specimens much bigger than that.


I note from your post in my thread about the CMS Mushroom Fair that you missed it, and your location says you're from Colorado. We have a Fair every year in August, so watch for it next year. I put announcements in the Gathering Forum for every CMS meeting and the Fair. Maybe you can make it next year.

Happy mushrooming!

You ate the puffball or the other mushroom? By the way, neither will make you trip, and the first may be poisonous.

You did cook it, didn't you?

No wild mushroom should be eaten raw. There are a number of edible mushrooms that are poisonous if eaten raw or undercooked.

Having your tongue turn green isn't a symptom of any kind of mushroom poisoning I've ever heard of. If you get some sort of mushroom poisoning, it'll almost certainly consist of nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. The main concern is loss of fluids resulting in dehydration.

Happy mushrooming!

the green toung is odd. perhaps some sort of dye like that found in some polypores, but i've never heard of anything like it in any puffball.

Most of the puffballs ive seen around my house have green spores, could the color have changed from white to green or something?

there is no chance that they sporulated in the time between cooking and eating.
