The Prince, a delicious edible mushroom, is fruiting early on the Mendonoma Coast

I think of The Prince, Agaricus augustus, as a summer mushroom. With the dry weather we've been having on the Coast, this mushroom has bloomed early.

Mark Hancock recently photographed a group of them on the Gualala Arts Center grounds. In the first photo you see Mark's hand to give you the scale.

Gifts of the forest! Thanks to Mark for allowing me to share his photos with you here.
