I have read in the contamination forum of people having a greenhish hue to their mushroom caps and responses have tended to state this is bruising. 90% of my dads friends roomates harvested mushie caps are turning green and cracked as well as turning upwards splitting and getting darker while drying. these same mushies have this same greenish color on the insided of stem and under the cap when thin top layer of cap is gently ripped off. They are not slimy and do not seem to smell bad and no contams have been present on casings or in bags. you can almost see the outer rim of the mushies as they mature start to get the greenish hue before even picked otherwise they look perfectly healthy pre-harvest. I know from my reseach on this forum that this is probably normal but i cant help but wonder why they are all getting green like that it just doesnt look normal or right plz help settle my uneasy mind or give me the bad news. sorry no pics peoples, i hope my description is good enough thx in advance for all help/advice

It could be bruising from handling. Sometime when the caps are big they tend to crack open when drying for me because of different parts of the cap drying at different speeds. If the bruising is faint it may appear to be greenish.

Unless you can actually rub the green off as a powdery covering then it probably isnt a contam. I wouldn't worry unless you could see it actually covering the flesh and moving around and smelling up the place.

A pic would help, but i really think that's just bruising .
