Adventures of the Boomer ‘Shroomers! – The King Bolete

King & Aspen Boletes

Rocky Mountain King Bolete Pictures

Joy found this big “King” (aka Boletus edulis or Porcini) last August near Nederland. Note: Kings have light tan-to-yellowish pores on the underside of the cap, as boletes have pores instead of gills under the cap. DO NOT EAT any bolete with RED pores!!

 

Found about 100' from Tent

That day in August 2013 we found a few and left even more.
