Mushroom

Mushroom

Description

Mushroom, an edible fungus of the toadstool variety. These fungi contain a fair amount of potassium.

Available throughout the year.

Note: Some mushrooms have thin veils closing around the stem; others have open veils caused by water loss during maturation. Open veils are not a sign of poor quality. In fact, although these mushrooms will not hold as long, they are higher in nutrients and have more pungent flavor.
