About the Holiday

National Mushroom Day pays tribute to the famous fungi with over 14,000 different varieties (depending on the definition of what is considered a "mushroom"). While some mushrooms are highly poisionous if eaten, a number of others are commonly eaten. Edible mushrooms are a versatile food that can be stuffed, breaded, grilled or sauteed and can be eaten with a wide range of foods including salad, eggs, spaghetti and pizza. Some mushrooms like morels can sell for between $12-$40 per pound, while some varieties of truffle can sell for over $1,000 per pound. Mushrooms even have their very own website.
