Riesenbovist Mushroom

I put a Pumpkin beside this one so you can see how big that Riesenbovist ist

The  Riesenbovist is so huge …I could not believe my eyes it is sooo big.

The Giant puff-ball is about 10-50 cm in diameter, is round and without a stem. The skin is smooth and leathery.

And if you still not see the size …have a look at this big knife beside this one

I honestly never seen a mushroom that size.

One can even eat them! Cut them into slices and fry them up like a steak…we decided not to go for that though and leave them where they where..in this wonderful green forest.

left as is in the Forest

Der Riesenbovist wird im Durchmesser etwa 10–50 cm groß, ist rundlich und ohne Stiel. Die Haut ist glatt und lederartig.

 Ich hatte noch nie ein so grosser Piltz gesehen….

This is the bottom of the Mushroom where it sat on the ground...so BIG

in this picture you can see one that is still fresh and two that are already brown and no longer good to eat…from what I have been told.
