Lentinus tigrinus

I lost my pictures of the original specimens. this cake is whole brown rice inoculated with a tissue transfer from the stem of a wild collection. I originally thought i had lentinus citrinus but after reviewing more pictures i think this is very likely l. tigrinus. i'm going to return to the collection site and search for more samples to compare.















i've expanded to grain jars and i'll be conducting full scale experiments with this species.

I was reading a field guide of Texas mushrooms, and L. Tigrinus is listed as "Edible and Choice."  Other sources say they're too tough to eat and have an unpleasant taste.  So which is it?!

I'm also wondering if L. tigrinus has any potential for commercial cultivation.  The authors of my field guide seem to think it does.  They also mention Neolentinus (Lentinus) lepideus as being a choice edible, and just about all the information I can find on that species suggests they taste bad and are too fibrous to eat.

Unfortunately, you'll find many, many discrepancies in the description of tastes and edibility amongst the field guides.  Outside of those known (beyond any shadow of a doubt) to be seriously poisonous, above just gastrointestinal problems, you're not likely to find more than two books that will agree of the topic of edibility for most mushrooms unless they are commonly cultivated.  Your best bet is to go with the word of newer books as STARTING point.  Chew small amounts to determine your individual sensitivities and tastes.  Be sure to ALWAYS be 100% on your IDs and ALWAYS get a second opinion.

well i have eaten l. citrinus which is much thinner and tougher than l. tigrinus and i found it quite pleasant. l. tigrinus has much more meat and is softer so i assume this should be just as good.

Well then, it seems as if "it probably won't make you sick" is a good enough reason to try eating something.  I feel like I'm getting in touch with my paleolithic hunter-gatherer ancestors!

I need to find an experienced mushroom hunter that can help me find some specimens.  If this can be cultivated in a way that can make a desireable and marketable mushroom, I can quit my IT job!

Don't plan on quitting any job.  Making it in the mushie business is harder than it looks from the outside.  If it was that easy, don't you think that more people would have already established companies?  (Granted, there are a lot of companies out there, but not in comparison to those capable of growing the mushrooms.)

I wasn't being serious, but man... I hate the corporate world.  I frequent a farmer's market every saturday and one of the growers sells button mushrooms, criminis and oysters, but they don't grow them.  I'd be interested in seeing just how large an operation one needs to make a living.

Just out of curiousity, what kind of environment do these like, and what do they typically grow on?  (And are there any lookalikes I should be careful of.)  I'm planning a trip up to the Big Thicket area of East Texas in the next few weeks to hunt for specimens... unless they prefer hardwoods.

Have you tried Neolentinus lepideus?  I can't find a whole lot of information on that, either.

i found these growing in a sandy area, likely feeding on some buried wood debris, i found a few others growing on fallen black willow logs. i usually find l. citrinus growing on various wood debris and in sandy areas, sometimes on well decomposed oak.

there is one species that looks similar which has pores rather than gills, i dont recall the name right now.


updates!

















they're growing nicely i think. these fruits are considerably smaller than the originals but that was expected based on the substrate and environment. my grain jars are coming along fairly well, i'll add pics of those in the next couple days.

Nice!  What are these growing on?  BRF and vermiculite or sawdust?

Any chance of me getting a tissue culture from you?  I'm new to this, so I'm not sure of the social conventions of this community.  I also have nothing to trade as of yet, aside from commercially available cultures purchased from Sporeworks.

the substrate is whole cooked brown rice.

i'll share the culture eventually. i want to do a little more work with it and get full sized fruits to do a proper ID before i give it out.
