TOPIC: While gathering mushrooms

While gathering mushrooms 3 years 4 months ago #29404

I found what has to be the largest 4 pronger today, that is a 35 LB kitty litter container I carry for fungi to give size reference. Latt asked me to post this.

Agree.. nice one and a nice wad of berries.

I would plant the ones that are red now and hope to get to plant the others when you come back and harvest the root.

Hope you can follow up and show us what the root looks like.

Based on the plant size and those large broad leaves and the big berry pod... I bet it is a good one.

Congrats on the find.

TN,
I was wondering, If a fella planted the red berries/seed as Shroomdawg did, what if he intended on leaving the plant and not digging it later on and was not able to get back to pick the remaining red berries after the green ones left behind ripened.

I think I remember you posting an experiment the showed green berries will do fine if planted late in the year.

So the question is do you plant the green berries or let them ripen and fall off leaving it up to mother nature.

I do remember finding a study that was done that said that something like 50% of green berries planted after 8/15 will actually germinate.

If I found a nice one like that before season opened, I would sure plant those red berries, but would come back after season opened and harvest the root and plant the rest of the red berries. It may be a little early for a green berry to be planted and make it.

I think after Sept 1 (our season opener) that most green berries planted will have a good chance of germinating.

That first week or so of season, I always find some that have a mix of red and green berries and I always plant them all.
