King Boletes, Boletus edulis, are still being found.

It amazes me that King Boletes are being found in April. They "normally" fruit in the fall after the first rains. But this hasn't been a normal weather year. The rains we had in February and March have prompted a very late bloom in some places.

Alon Fish and Tony Gatchalian found some beauties near Manchester.

This delicious edible mushroom is also called Porcini or Cep. Cece Case found one too, this one near The Sea Ranch

Lucky mushroom foragers! I do wonder what will happen in the fall - will there be a strong fruiting of King Boletes? Time, of course, will tell.

Thanks to Alon and Cece for allowing me to share their photos with you here.
