Porcini Mushrooms

Production area:
all the Park valleys

Curiosities: the Park houses an extraordinarily rich forest biodiversity of plants and animals. The natural products of our woodlands include mushrooms, standing out for variety and quality, and among them the king of our autumn tables: Porcino mushroom (Boletus edulis). Waiting for a quality and territorial typicality label that our mushrooms would deserve, we can taste it in the several restaurants, trattorias, and holiday farms of the Park. Already appreciated in the Middle Ages, mushrooms represented (and still represent) an important feature of the rural economy of the Park, where holdings dedicating themselves to mushroom conservation and sale work.

Product features: Porcini mushrooms spontaneously grow in the woodlands of the whole regional mountain area, with organoleptic features varying from valley to valley. Mushroom picking is carried out in woodlands where chestnut trees, Turkey oaks, beech trees, hornbeams, and ash trees grow. Porcini mushrooms growing under beech trees are white and tapered, while those growing under chestnut trees are darker and with a red stem.
