Giant Puffball (Calvatia gigantea)
Grow your own edible and medicinal Giant Puffball mushrooms with liquid culture
Calvatia gigantea or Giant Puffball is found through the central and eastern
United States, Canada and Europe. They have been traditionally used as a
dressing for wounds as well as tinder. American Indians would use the fumes of
the smoldering fruit bodies to calm bees, allowing easier access to the nest. They
would also use it as incense, believing that it would help keep away bad spirits.
Giant puffball grows on the ground, feeding on dead organic matter. It has a
white fleshy interior that becomes greenish brown as it matures. It can grow to be
10 to 50 centimetres, occasionally reaching 90 centimetres. To be edible, it must
harvested young, when still white and solid and should be eaten soon after
harvest as it does not keep very well.
