discolored caps?
    #4679591 - 09/18/05 11:50 PM (11 years, 5 months ago)

Thanks almost entirely to the help of people on this board, I am looking at a tub full of beautful B+'s....

and some kinda ugly ones.  Some of the caps are greenish/brown, and some are very light tan colored with a bit of a greenish hue. 

Is this some sort of contaminated mushroom product?  Should I pick these now, before the veil breaks, and are they going to be safe to eat?

I mean, if I were into that sort of thing :wink:

Thank you guys for everything.

It sounds like your caps have what is called "bacterial blotch"

This happens when there is moisture that stays on the caps for a long period of time. The caps basically start to rot (greenish/yellowish/black hue).

You may still be able to salvage those mushies.

Yes, you should pick them now and dry them in order to save them.

If they continue to "rot" or get mushy while drying them, then they are a lost cause. If the caps continue to do that, see if you can try to save the stems at least and cut off the caps.

Hope that helps.

GL TO YA!
