How long are abhorts "safe"?
    #4113088 - 04/30/05 01:24 AM (11 years, 7 months ago)

In otherwords, once the cap turns black, how long do I have before they're not safe to consume because of rot?

I'm asking because I have a clump of about 12 mushrooms all growing together. About 5 are abhorts though. Looking at it I'm fairly certain I couldn't pick the abhorts off without pulling some material out of the stems of the good mushrooms. So I want to leave them on long enough for the living shrooms to keep growing, but then pick the whole bunch before the abhorts turn nasty.

Say from the time I first notice a black head (and I'm checking once a day)... how long do I have?

you'll be able to tell if they get past their prime. they start to rot, like fruit. they get all soggy and slump and can grow some fuzz on the caps or stem. before that and you're fine to eat. black caps don't mean bad...overly slimy/sloppy/fuzzy caps are bad. pick em off as soon as they abort if you can get away w/ not damaging the other shroomies.

do you have a pic of what that fuzz might be? I dunno if thier is alot to tell between the mycelia growing on the shrooms due to high humidity or fuzz growing becuz of rot. i think a pic would help both me and him out thanx

my question is similar to this one, i had a lil fuzz on my abhorts when i picked them. No smell, no slim, but black caps and they looked a lil fuzzy, are they still safe?
