Poisonous and inedible mushrooms of August

The beginning of August and the last decade of this summer month is marked by a decrease in temperature indicators over the greater territory of our country, which is very favorable for edible mushrooms, as well as for poisonous and inedible varieties. About ten species of dangerous mushrooms are most widespread in the forests of Russia. The massive peak of fruiting of deadly poisonous and inedible mushrooms occurs just in the last month of summer.

Chanterelle picking in August

Mushroom places of Russia

In the most "mushroom" countries, mushroom picking is quite strictly regulated by law, therefore, compliance with the collection rules is monitored carefully. In many countries of the world there are special mushroom picker clubs, and a variety of mushroom travel cards have been developed, theme festivals are held, having visited which you can try the most exotic types.

Of course, mushroom tourism in our country has not yet received the widest possible distribution, however, the popularity of "silent" hunting is obvious. Among the most popular among domestic mushroom pickers and fruitful mushroom places are the following areas and regions of our country:

  • Tver region, at the recreation center "Medveditsa";
  • Tomsk region, as well as the territory of Altai and Krasnoyarsk Territory, where procurement companies specializing in the processing of mushroom products are located;
  • Vladimir and Yaroslavl region;
  • a significant part of the Moscow region;
  • Mikheevo village of the Komsomolsky district of the Kaluga region;

  • central and western regions of Karelia;
  • Kondopoga district - the village of Girvas, the village of Krasnaya Rechka, Tulgube and Luchevoy;
  • Loukhsky district, near Lake Engozero;
  • Gatchinsky, Vyborg, Priozerny and Volkhov districts of the Leningrad region;
  • Kirovsky district near the village of Sinyavino and the village of Mountains of the Leningrad region.

The undisputed leader in the number of mushroom places is deservedly Karelia. It is difficult to evaluate mushroom places by productivity, since each year the picture of productivity changes depending on external factors, including weather conditions.

Again in August

The most mushroom month in most regions of our country is August. From the first days there comes a peak of fruiting of saffron mushrooms, boletus, boletus and boletus. Also, a significant number of less valuable mushrooms appear, which include trevushki, rowovki and podgruzki.
