Map of mushroom places of Chuvashia
So the time has come to pick mushrooms in Chuvashia, the season of “silent hunting” begins. Of course, some mushrooms could be found in the summer, but the real season is autumn, early and golden, when the weather is still warm but damp. If this summer were not so dry, the picking season would start early. But now there is still enough time before the arrival of real cold weather, which means that you can go to the forest with a basket.

"Silent hunting" is traditionally called picking mushrooms. And not only because the excitement of the mushroom picker is so similar to hunting. The mushrooms seem to hide from the pickers, take shelter between the old foliage and grass, choose secluded places among the roots of trees and in uneven soil. To find them, you need knowledge about their features and about interspecific neighborhood with trees.
To pick mushrooms requires patience and time, observation and luck, however, knowledge of mushroom places is especially important. Without them, nowhere in this business.
How to find mushroom spots
Chuvashia is a mushroom region. Residents annually stock up mushrooms for the winter, and many families keep old recipes for traditional seasonal dishes with these delicious and nutritious gifts of nature. Mushroom pickers born in Chuvashia, of course, have known mushroom glades and coppices of their native land since childhood.
Not all local lovers of “silent hunting” are ready to share information on where to find the best boletus and boletus. But for this purpose, there is just a working map of mushroom places in Chuvashia.
Map of mushroom places
The mushroom map of Chuvashia, or the map of the mushroom picker, is a geographic map of the republic, sometimes an even more expanded map of the Volga region, with information about species of mushrooms growing in the vicinity that is “tied” to certain settlements.
Similar cards began to be printed in various regions during the Soviet era. Now, in the age of the Internet, they have become even more accessible, and they can also be easily adjusted annually.
Almost throughout the entire republic of Chuvashia you can find:
- honey mushrooms.
Boletus and cap boletus belong to the genus Obabok. They form mycorrhiza with the roots of conifers and deciduous trees. Mycorrhiza (a symbiosis of tree roots and mycelium) is a perennial, persistent formation, so in coniferous-deciduous forests they will not transfer until the forest lives.
Chuvashia is rich in mushroom places
Russula also grows in mixed forests.
The ubiquity of honey agarics is known, because all that they need for a happy life is a decaying tree.
But the white breasts (belong to the family Syryozhkovye) form mycorrhiza with birch, occur, according to the map, only in the Volga region.
Black mushrooms related to conditionally edible fungi grow:
- in the Volga region;
- in the vicinity of Mariinsky Posad;
- near Ibresi;
- around the city of Alatyr.
Irina Selyutina (Biologist):
Black lumps live in coniferous (pine-spruce) or mixed forests with a large percentage of birches growing there. Deciduous forests are exotic for him. However, there are cases when a black hole was found in the steppe. But this does not mean that there is almost his own. It’s just that in those places there were birches with which the fungus forms mycorrhiza. Plus, mycelium requires a large amount of sunlight. This type of breasts occurs from mid-July to October. But the peak of fruiting depends on the weather: mushrooms will appear only with the onset of coolness. Hot and dry summers and the same autumn can so inhibit the development of mycelium that fruiting bodies may not form.
Oilfishes, according to the map, are found around Alatyr. Butterflies usually grow around the edges of the edges, on the sidelines of paths; Oak groves and young pine trees are especially fond of.
Where to not collect
Unsuitable places to collect:
- in the territories of reserves and reserves (under the law this threatens with a large fine);
- near highway and railway gauge;
- close to settlements with industrial enterprises;
- near landfills and landfills.
The biology of mushrooms is such that their body accumulates all harmful pollution from the environment (air, water, soil). For example, when collecting near a highway in a mushroom mass, heavy metals from exhaust gases, primarily lead, will certainly be found.
All kinds of toxins and decomposition products of biological and inorganic waste penetrate into the fungus’s body at landfills (and near them, because rain and soil water far carry substances that enter the soil and its surface).
What is important to remember
Special recommendations for mushroom pickers:
- You cannot pick unknown mushrooms.
- You can not taste raw mushrooms to taste.
- Before going to the forest, learn about all the differences between edible and poisonous counterparts that look like them.
- If in doubt, ask a more experienced mushroomer to sort out your forest trophies for inedible finds.
- Take care of mushrooms: do not trample them, do not pull the mushrooms out of the ground with rough movements, but cut or gently twist the leg.
- To search for mushrooms, use a stick - it is much more convenient.
Mushroom places in Chuvashia are rather accurately indicated on the map and there is a detailed listing of mushrooms growing in these places in abundance. Good luck with your quiet hunt!
