Since the asparagus season has just ended, the next seasonal vegetable is already in the starting blocks: the mushroom season begins as early as July.

Munich – For many, mushroom picking is not just about getting food, but rather a good opportunity to spend a lot of time in the forest.

And this year, collectors will probably be able to have their baskets ready earlier: Thanks to enough precipitation, plenty of mushrooms are already sprouting in many places.

Even if September to October is usually the peak season for mushrooms, mushroom lovers should be in the forest as early as July.

The following conditions contribute to the fact that mushrooms can be found already in summer:

  • Lots of rain

  • High humidity

  • The soil is not too dry.

  • The rule of thumb is: where it has rained, mushrooms will sprout out of the ground in the forest after one to two weeks.

According to the Norddeutscher Rundfunk ("NDR"), mushrooms grow all year round.

Chanterelles can usually be found from July, while porcini mushrooms sprout from August to October.

Most types of mushrooms are found in both deciduous and coniferous forests.

Beginners should start their search in the coniferous forest, since there are fewer species there: chanterelles, porcini mushrooms, chestnuts, butter mushrooms, sand agarics and snow chanterelles are also very common there.

On the website of the German Society for Mycology, interested parties can contact regional mushroom advisors and book mushroom hikes.

You can find even more exciting garden topics in the free 24garten.de newsletter, which you can subscribe to here.

If you are unsure whether the mushroom that ended up in your basket is really edible, mushroom apps can help you identify it.

But when in doubt, it is better to leave the mushrooms that you were not able to assign 100 percent exactly and resort to cultivated goods.

In the worst case, there is a risk of life-threatening poisoning, since every edible mushroom has a poisonous counterpart!

With specially planted mushrooms in the garden, you have full certainty instead.
