I have never seen these mushrooms but a friend gave me two huge ones.

"The giant puffballs are generally considered to be edible. But there are some things you have to watch out for. Especially a problem are the false puffballs, Scleroderma species. The false puffballs all have a thick tough skin and are generally dark inside (the gleba) even from a young age. They are not severely poisonous, causing a somewhat unpleasant gastrointestinal upset. Fortunately most of them are small. less than 15 cm diameter. The tough skin and unpleasant flavor ensures that few people have been tempted to eat this fungus. The species shown here is probably Scleroderma citrinum, the poison pigskin puffball."
