bay bolete

[English] plural bay boletes

The bay bolete is an edible mushroom which grows profusely under pine or spruce trees. It varies in diameter from 5-15 cm (2-3 inches) and bears pores, rather than gills, under a smooth, brown cap born on a short slender stem. (If gathering mushrooms you must be absolutely certain what you have before you eat them as many are very poisonous.)
