Matsutake Picking Season Begins [OR]

Matsutake Picking Season Begins
September 12, 2005 - koin.com

BEND, Ore. (AP) -- Hundreds of mushroom pickers have descended on Oregon this week, for the opening of the commercial Matsutake mushroom picking season.

The season started Monday in Oregon's Deschutes, Fremont-Winema, Umpqua and Willamette National Forests.

The Matsutake is considered a great delicacy in Japan and it commands quite a price.

At times during the 1990s supplies dropped and buyers were paying hundreds of dollars a pound.

Since then, the laws of supply and demand have prompted pickers to harvest Matsutake in China, Turkey and elsewhere.

Prices are back down to between $5 and $15 a pound.

Local Forest Service districts don't issue personal use Matsutake permits until October and there's a limit of fifteen mushrooms per person.

To prove they're not commercial harvesters, personal pickers also have to cut their mushrooms in half.

picking fruit bodies does not in any way impact the speceis OR the habitat.

imposing legal limitations on mushroom piciking is nothing shy of ignorant facism.
