In LuxembourgHe discovers a 2.5 kg boletus a stone’s throw from Findel
NIEDERANVEN – Roman made a great discovery while walking through the woods in Waldhof last weekend.
The images are impressive and the mushroom pickers probably a little jealous. Roman sent to The essential a series of photos on which we see him posing proudly with his pretty find: a huge boletus that weighs 2.5 kg! He came across it last weekend, after five hours of searching in Waldhof, in the town of Niederanven.
“I had never seen such a big mushroom,” says the 31-year-old man who “hunted” far from his land since he lives in Belvaux. “It was a friend who recommended the area to me, but I was luckier than her,” he smiles, proving that the mushroom “was beautiful, not damaged at all.”
Did the mushroom end up in a huge fricassee? In the end, Roman didn’t eat it because his thing is “more research than cooking”. He tasted the other mushrooms he found and offered some to his friends.
As autumn marks the start of the mushroom season, it is a good idea to remember that a potentially serious accident can happen very quickly. It is better to have your basket checked by specialists: the Maison de la nature offers permanence every Saturday from 6 p.m. to 7.30 p.m. until October 29 in Kockelscheuer. Members of the Mycological Research Group of the Luxembourg Society of Naturalists (SNL) will analyze your harvest and determine the edibility of your harvest, while providing you with details on each species.
Luxembourg is full of different varieties but the picking of edible mushrooms is very supervised. It is prohibited in protected natural areas and restricted everywhere else: no one can pick up more than one kilogram per day and per person.
