casing blueing
    #427850 - 10/16/01 11:02 PM (15 years, 1 month ago)

my friends caseings are bluing or so she says as I have never seen them. She said that they were kept overly warm (80 degrees +). I have read several things here namely that this could be moisture problems ie; not enough? or heat problems. WHich is it?

Sounds like bruising of the cakes. Were you at all overly rought with them?

the cakes are cased. I don't have anything compare "rough" to since this is her first time. They were coming along nicely as white myc. and then started bluing recently as they were pinning.

All I can say is that blue is nothing to worry about. Most likely just bruising.

I'm no expert, but I have several cakes fruiting now,
and a few of them had substansial blueing where I had
handled them but it went away after they started pinning.

a few thoughts on contams, gleaned from others...

bluing can indicate over-handling or lack of proper moisture. are you sure its blue and not green? green-blue could be a contam- does it wipe off when touched with a napkin? (yes=green mold).

if its not green...
flushes often rob the casing of moisture... they can shrink and blue.

How much of the casing is covered with mycelium - it sounds like a lot?...

Is it just the myc that has turned blue? or the casing too?
