Porcini Mushroom

Specific Varieties: King Bolete (Boletus edulis), Bicolor Bolete (Boletus bicolor), Bay Bolete (Boletus badius [Imleria is not a correct term, it is NOT a mushroom genus]), Rocky Mountain Red King (Boletus rubriceps), Barrows Bolete (Boletus barrowsii), and others.

Not commonly raised in mass cultivation, this mushroom requires living tree roots on which to colonize. Has long been thought to be too difficult to cultivate - we thought differently, and developed methods to do so.

Boletes are prized in Italy, and used around the world. They are a favorite of mushroom hunters. Flavors can vary some, but they generally have a pleasant flavor, ranging from mild to deep.

Key identifier for the Bolete species is smooth or suede cap, spore tubes, and reticulated stipe. Other Boletus type genera do not have a reticulated stipe, they will have spotted, scabered, or smooth stipe. Boletus species may stain when bruised, or not, and this is a key identifier for species.

Good for pigs, goats, cattle, sheep, ok for chickens and turkeys and quail. Mushrooms in general can help with animal health.

  • King Bolete may help the body metabolize fats instead of storing them.
  • Bicolor may help the body metabolize stored fats.
  • Bay Bolete may help skin repair itself after injury.

Many Boletus species are now available in our Mushroom Store.


Mushrooms may cause allergic reactions in sensitive people. Some mushrooms are more likely to do this than others. Please research possible reactions prior to purchase. We are not responsible for how you choose to use our products, and do not claim that mushrooms are completely safe to consume. We merely assure that they are as represented on our website.

We do not make any promises as to the efficacy of any mushroom product to treat or prevent any disease or condition. Please consult a doctor or alternative practitioner prior to using any mushroom product for treatment of any disease or illness.

We cannot guarantee that any spawn, spore, or kit product will grow or produce mushrooms. We do guarantee that our products are as described, and that the methods in our instructions do produce good results, but once our products leave our facility, we can no longer control the factors which are responsible for success. Gardening of any kind is a chancy business, and success depends upon adherence to instructions, and may be influenced by weather, environmental factors, and other controllable and non-controllable factors. As such, we cannot guarantee your success, and advise that if you are uncomfortable with purchasing under these terms, that you refrain from purchase.

We do promise to answer your questions, and offer reasonable assistance if needed, and to correct any errors if a mistake is made on our part.
