Description

Lion's Mane - Hericium erinaceus



Hericium erinaceus is an edible mushroom and medicinal mushroom in the tooth fungus group. It can be identified by its tendency to grow all the spines out from one group (rather than branches), long spines and its appearance on hardwoods. Although it is growing in Europe, it is not well known. For its unique delicious taste and the very decorative coral-like look the lion´s mane mushroom gets more and more a sought component of nouvelle cuisine. Out in the nature, Hericium erinaceus can be found in deciduous forests of Europe, North America and Asia (in particular in China and Japan).
