All carpophores fungi are included in the Boletus genus and they are popularly known as “mushrooms”.

They can be recognised by the sponge-like pat under their cap, made of many small tubes which can be separated individually and removed easily from the flesh. They have very small white, yellow or red pores, a non -blackening flesh when being cut although it can turn blue or green, and with thick stipes and yellow or greenish spores.

They can be bought whole or sliced, fresh and canned or frozen.
