Mushrooms in August 2019

August mushrooms

August 2019 is a busy period of growth of various types of mushrooms. In season grow:

If a couple of honey mushrooms have appeared, it is worth looking further: they grow in groups. They are used for pickling and frying. Collect this mushroom carefully, because there are false honey or false honey mushrooms. They have a color from gray-yellow to brick-red, on the legs there are no scales, rings, they smell bad.

So that children better remember what the differences between real and false mushrooms are with them, you can learn the quatrain:

Edible honey agaric

On the leg is a ring of film.

And false all mushrooms

Legs bare to toe.

Mushrooms, porcini mushrooms

Borovik in translation means "mushroom growing in coniferous forests - pine forests." The porcini mushroom is a representative of the species of the Boletovye family, this is the second name of the boletus.

White mushrooms have a hat of different colors, ranging from dark brown to light, it depends on the place of their growth. White dense pulp does not change color with different types of blanks. They can be dried, salted, fried.


Ginger tastes great. He lives in places where spruce grow. Its flesh is bright orange, the color turns blue at the cut. The leg is short.

Irina Selyutina (Biologist):

Mushrooms are characterized by their parasite fungi. Representatives of the Pekiela type brick-red, belonging to the Hypomycetous family, often settle on their fruiting bodies. During its development, its mycelium causes a reduction in the platelets of the hymenophore and almost completely covers the entire lower side of the cap of saffron mushroom. Fans of "silent hunting" call such mushrooms "stone" or "deaf". Mycologists say that the plates in this case lose their ability to form spores. Mushroom pickers and experts agree on nutritional value - it is not recommended to pick such mushrooms.

Before cooking, mushrooms do not require cooking, they only need soaking.


A funnel-shaped hat of a whitish color, of a light color, a leg in the shape of a cylinder, is characteristic for the males. Mushrooms are used for pickles.


Chanterelles are not worms; they grow on the territory of coniferous, birch, and mixed forests.

Irina Selyutina (Biologist):

Among fans of mushroom mushrooms, chanterelles are highly valued for their excellent taste and the almost complete absence of insect larvae (which we more commonly call “worms”) in fruiting bodies. This is due to the presence in the pulp of a special compound - quinomannose, which is a natural shield of the fungus against parasites (antihelmentic), trying to feast on it.

The spore-bearing layer of the chanterelle consists of pseudoplates — thick, sparse and branched folds, of the same color as the hat, which descend along the leg and blur the border between it and the hat. It is this and the peculiarity of the formation of spores that served as the basis for the selection of chanterelles in the family Chanterelle


Usually mushroom pickers pick up white and pink traps.

The pink trefoil has a lot of synonyms:

  • Volzhanka;
  • waves;
  • broth;
  • Krasul;
  • the bagpipe.

These mushrooms are common on mosses, in marshy places, in shaded areas. The wave has a pink-colored hat, its height is 5-7 cm, the leg is 2 cm in diameter. There is a depression in the middle of the hat, which disappears as it grows.

A white wave, or as it is also called - a whitetail, Volzhanka, grows among birches, its height reaches 4 cm. A hat with a depressed middle. The color is dark in the middle, light at the edges. Harvested in August.


Flywheels have a great taste

The flywheel is an edible mushroom of category 3 with excellent taste. Mushrooms are boiled, canned, fried, pickled, dried. The flywheel grows along roads, at the edges of forests and among shrubs.

Orange-cap boletus (redheads)

Aspen mushrooms are distinguished by a bright orange hat, grow in mixed forests near aspens. They have a pleasant taste and are used for boiling, frying, drying and marinating.


The undergrowth belongs to the russula, it is called:

  • sub-milkman;
  • spurge;
  • lump red-brown.

The undergrowth has a dense hat with a diameter of up to 10 cm, in shape it is flat, has the property of cracking. The color of the hat is from red to yellow-brown.

The pulp is white, fleshy, dense. Its smell is described in different ways: to someone it resembles a herring, and to someone it smells of pear flowers, but someone does not feel it at all. When cut, white milky juice is released, which turns brown and thickens in the air.


Russula are a common species of edible mushrooms, grow in deciduous, coniferous forests. Collection begins in August.
