just found a shroom....is it ok to eat
    #3384788 - 11/19/04 04:38 PM (12 years, 18 days ago)

hey,
i just found a small mushroom growing by my mailbox [wish i could show it to you but I don't have a camera at the moment] all i can do is describe it
it's small, dark brown. almost looks rotten. it smells like a regular mushroom [the kind i get on my pizza] and the cap is about 2 inches in circumference.
Does this sound ok to eat, and if so, do i have to dry it first, or can i eat it fresh? Is the stem ok to eat?
thanks!

Why the hell would you eat that?

Just kidding. Need a picture and more info. Don't eat anything unless you are 100% sure it is okay.

You can't be serious!

"I found a little rotten brown mushroom. Can I eat it?"

Some little brown mushrooms are deadly poisonous. Eating rotten edible mushrooms can cause food poisoning.

You no eat!

honestly dude there are so many mushrooms that can kill you and so many that look like others and so many that will make you sick, you need to learn a little before even thinking about eating fungus that you find.......

is there a ratio of halucinegenic mushrooms to non-halucinegenic? or better yet halucinegenic to poisonous? because i think people need to hear how many mushrooms ARENT active in comparison to the ones that are.

The majority are of unknown edibility.
There are also more poisonous species than active.

This is one of those questions that is very easy to ask and impossible to answer accurately. It varies continuously depending on habitat, time of year, recent weather, geography, and lots of other things.

The term poisonous includes everything from mushrooms that cause mild nausea or diarrhea to species that are lethal. As eris stated, most are unknown.

Incidentally, we now have a spelling checker available below beside the Continue button.

Happy mushrooming!
