A mushroom is the edible fruiting body of a fungus. The edible part consists of a cap, gills and stem. Some grow above ground, some below ground. Care should be taken with identification, as some mushrooms are toxic. The Common Mushroom has a white hemispherical cap, sometimes with scales, that flattens out as it matures, and under the cap are pink gills that mature to brown. The stem can be up to 4″ tall and has a single thin ring round it. The immature common mushroom is known as a Button Mushroom. and is usually harvested before the stems have grown much, and before the cap has flattened.
