How late is too late on aborts?
    #449989 - 11/07/01 09:49 AM (15 years, 11 months ago)

hey,

I'm growing ecuadorians on straight vermiculite cakes over perlite. This is my first go at this, having a great time with both cultivation and consumption. Doing ok so far, no problems with contamination that i can see.

I have read that aborts are just fine to eat, more potent even, but you have to get them before they rot. (on a side note, whats the difference between rot and contamination? just different kinds of bactiria?)

I'm judging what is and what isn't an abort by watching for the caps to darken at an early age. This seems to be the only sure fire clue of an abort, as shroomies that seem to have stopped their growth often spring up the next day.

Very commonly when i slice an abort in half there is blackening of the shroom flesh where the cap meets the stalk. It is recognizably different from brusing or oxidational blueing. There is no goo in the center of the stalk, and this blackening is very local.

Is this the first stages of rot? Is a small amount of this blackend part safe to eat? If not, could it be safely cut away so that the rest of the abort (which looks very normal) might be eaten?

Safe to eat, but try to pick the aborts early.
