apricot chantrelles?
    #668143 - 06/08/02 12:29 AM (14 years, 6 months ago)

I recently purchased some apricot chantrelles from a store for $29.99 a pound. These obviously werent true chantrelles, but they were cultivated on what looked to be pine. Does anyone know what these are? I put them in the fridge and they started growing more mycelium in areas at the base of the cluster. To make a long story short I now have them on agar in the fridge and the mycelium likes it. What should I transfer to them to?

That is interesting. True chanterelles are not cultivated "yet" because of their complex life cycle involving symbiosis with trees. Do you have a picture or at least a description? $30 a pound is pretty spendy. Real chanterelles in season go for about $5-$10 a pound in my area.

no they definetly werent true chantrelles, in fact they in no way looked like chantrelles. the kind of resembled cubs in shape and in the way they grew in cluster. The caps are dark red and stems were tan to tanish red. They smelled strongly of apricots and they were obviously cultivated not picked . This was determined by they pine shavings and wood chips in it along with a casing layer that looked like a pine needles and cocofiber. These were very expensive and I over payed for them, but they looked so fresh and were cultivated. So of course I said what the hell and bought some to see what I could do with them. The mycelium is white the spores looked tannish to rusty gills were a light tan. I will go buy some more so I can post pics so someone can identify them. I thought the name was intresting because they called them chantrelles. The taste great I cooked them in a terriaki sauce with small pieces of apricots and apricot jelly. I poured this over some grilled chicken and fillets.

Do try to get some pics, because this is a mystery worth solving.

All I have to add is that chanterelles are sometimes known to smell of apricot or peach.

Not many mushrooms grow in clusters. They might just Pink oysters with appealing commercial name.
