are all woodoving species edible?
    #2142671 - 11/28/03 06:47 PM (13 years, 9 days ago)

an educated man told me that all species of mushroom that grow directly from wood are edible. they may not be tasty, they may be hard and dry, but theyre edible.

is this true?

Its cube season on the gulf coast.

Whats more natural than a man going out and collecting medicines?

I like to take the heavenly route to hell.

Oh hell no. Galerinas grow on wood and they're deadly. I can think of at least 5 other woodlovers that will make you very very ill if you eat them. Very bad advice this man gave.

I'm wondering what your "educated man" was educated in. It must not have been mycology.

Gumby is exactly right.

Deadly Galerinas grow on wood. So do the very nasty poisonous Jack O'Lantern mushrooms. Those are the most dangerous ones, but there are many others.

Happy mushrooming!

There is a good possibility that Phaeolus schweinitzii is poisonous.

Laetiporus sulphureus has caused several poisonings, although it is generally regarded as edible. It is not known if the poisonings are due to substrate (growing on a kind of wood which causes them to become poisonous), inidividual sensitivity, or something else.

Most of the polypores are simply inedible, as they have a texture like wood. As a result, most of them have never been tested for toxicity and probably never will be.

The ones that have an edible texture and which don't taste too bitter to eat are all considered nontoxic (which is what I think you meant).

Happy mushrooming!
