It comes back every year in the same spots. It kinda looks like chick of the woods. But I don't think it's that.
Chicken of the woods.
Is this a find from this year? I thought they came up more in the fall.
One of the Chicken of the Woods polys. There are at least five or six subspecies around here. Two most common here are.
Laetiporus sulhureus , which is more orange with yellow underside, fruiting later in the fall.
Laetiporus Cincinnatus, which appears to be the one you have, lighter in color and usually white underneath.
Some subspecies fruit as early as mid summer, most usually later in fall, late Sept , early October.
Not bad eating, before they mature and get "woody".
Looks like chicken of the woods to me.
I found one about three weeks ago and ate it up.
I thought it might be chick. But looked a little different than some of the pics I found. I didn't know about the different subspecies.
After doing some reading I think you are correct. These are growing on the roots. Which from what I read they do. I'm going to have to try some now.
Well I ate some. Was pretty good. Just put it in pan with butter. Think I will try it a different way tomorrow and suggestions?
I've never deep fried any..who knows? Try them in your eggs in the morning or sautee then throw in your sghetti sauce.
I've fried them, put in spaghetti sauce, on pizza and jumbalaya, the pale chicken as you have is better than the yellow, not as tough
Are these immature "Chicken of the Woods" mushrooms? If so, how long does it take for them to mature?
Nope. Those are called Turkey Tails, woody and not good.
Ok, thanks. I better not eat them!!
