Neolentinus ponderosus, SW USA mushroom hunting
    #4503372 - 08/06/05 11:03 AM (12 years, 8 months ago)

Anyone eat Neolentinus Ponderosus- books say either too tough/inedible, or tasty if you slice it thin enough and parboil. It smells tasty, though. Evidently closer related to polypores (genetic data), though it has obvious serrated gills. A Very good looking mushroom with heavy, solid consistency. Cultured it and will try to post progress in gourmet section. (Didn't try this specimen as it was found too close to a roadway for my liking, thus culturing...)

Thx for any comments

I have eaten it. When young and fresh they're pretty good, fairly similar to matsutake.

Good luck on the culturing.

Happy mushrooming!

I bet if grown on a synthetic log or if they could be grown on straw they would be more supple. Oyster mushrooms grown on straw are much more supple than their wood grown counterparts. It's also been shown scientifically that woodgrown oysters contain more protein. I've perused getting a Lentinus squarrosulus because it was mentioned in GGMM as a faster growing,tropical cousin to shiitake.

Good luck!

I am looking for cultures/spores of Neolentinus ponderosus. I am interested in trading with anyone that finds any as they don't grow in my area.

It's been dry here this summer, but if I find some I'll make a spore print with you in mind.

Happy mushrooming!
