Mushroom Foraging Tips – March 2023

As March rolls in, the potential for foraging great mushrooms in the Cape increases.

Chicken of the Woods (Laetiporeus sulphureus) is still abundant and can be found throughout March.

The first frontal system brought in some good rain last week (mid to late February) and with this there is a great possibility of Summer Boletes (Boletus reticulatus), Porcini (Boletus edulis) and Bronze Boletes (Boletus aureus) coming up in the first days of March.

Hopefully we will see more rain during March as it will bring the possibility of great late-summer, early-autumn foraging.

Tip: Keep your eyes open for hot, windless days, especially when combined with hot nights, as these are ideal conditions for the prized boletes!

As always, remember that all wild mushrooms must be carefully identified, and cooked before eating.
