Lobster Mushroom

Hypomyces lactifluorum

Despite its common name, the lobster mushroom is actually a type of parasite that attacks many species of mushrooms, turning their outside the color of a cooked lobster shell. They have a crunchy texture and a shellfish-like odor and flavor. Our lobster mushrooms are wild-crafted in the Pacific Northwest.
