Variata Russula – This member of the Russula family is identified by its greenish cap with purple tones. The gills are attached meaning they look separate from the stem as opposed to “free” gills which flow from the underside of the cap into the stem as though the cap and stem were one. This is an important part of wild mushroom identification to help tell the edible from the non-edible. Other identification include spore prints and bruising. Learn the art of wild mushroom hunting then take your bounty home and enjoy their incredible tastes. Beautiful forest trails are home to the Variata as well as Summer Oysters, Giant Puffballs, White Pine Boletes, etc. And they’re only a fifteen minute car ride from Stratford. Find out why Marriot International listed Puck’s Plenty as one of the “Top 10 Adventures to Have this Summer”.
