Jew's Ear
    #3165344 - 09/22/04 05:05 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

Well I got a print of this in the mail today, along with some cubies, whats Jews ear, I swear thats what it was named this has nothing to do with my politcal beliefs which do NOT include hatting jews, I dislike religous extremism, of which Israel is a prime example, many Jews agree. (with that out of the way.........)

Is this mushroom easy to cultivate???

I just cant see this being a psychoactive mushroom.

What does it taste like , incubation temps , fruiting temps???

This mushroom is NEW to me thats for sure.

It's a wood ear probably Auricularia polytricha. The chinese and Japanese use it in hot sour soup.

Latin name:  Auricularia auricula-judae

Size: Approximately 60mms across.

Distribution: Found throughout the UK.

Months seen: All year round.

Habitat: Frequently found on elder and beech trees.

Special features: The name comes from the story that Judas Iscariot hung himself from an elder tree, and this type of fungi is often found growing on elder trees.

It is pale brown in colour, and really does resemble a human ear in both size, shape and texture. As it gets older it goes black and hard.

It is one of the few fungi which has the ability to withstand freezing temperatures. This is a useful attribute, since it develops new growths in January, which is normally the coldest month of the year in Britain. It can actually freeze solid, and when thawed out shows no ill effects.


Cool, I hope I can fruit some this year.
Doc's the man :wink:
