The Chestnut Boletes have begun their yearly fruiting in my yard. Their caps are an intense orange-brown with contrasting cream- white pore surface. Stems are chestnut brown. These mushrooms are delicious fresh and can also be lightly sautéed and frozen for later use.

Ihave found some teny tiny chesnuts but I didnt know if they really started out so small. Cap on smallest is 0.5 cm. Looks like a chesnut in every way, stem is hollow. Any ideas

Hi Melanie, It is difficult to make a positive ID from a verbal description. It sounds like the size and character of the Chestnut Bolete, but I would need to see some photos. Could you email some to me? firstname.lastname@example.org
