Last weekend I came upon the most interesting, colourful mushrooms while hiking in Jaggers Bush in Auckland City.
If you are like me, you might be wondering if it is safe to eat. Is it really a colourful mushroom, or is it a poisonous toadstool? According to the botany experts at Univerisity of Hawaii, “There is no fool-proof test that can be used for all mushrooms. Those species of mushrooms that are edible are known to be edible because someone at one time had tried it and discovered it to be safe to eat.” I have enough problems right now, I was not about to give it a try. (And I hope no one else would either, without knowing for sure that they were safe.)
Have you seen colourful mushrooms like these before? What do you think of them?
If you enjoyed these mushrooms, please share them on social media including Pinterest:
