Hedgehog Mushrooms


Hedgehog mushrooms has a very sweet smell and taste, it makes sense that this mushroom is also called the “sweet tooth” (unless the mushroom is older — then it can take on a bitter flavor). Crunchy, nutty and meaty, this mushroom tastes very similar to a chanterelle.

Hydnum repandum, generally known as the sweet tooth, wood hedgehog, or hedgehog mushroom, is a basidiomycete fungus of the family Hydnaceae. First described by Carl Linnaeus in 1753, it is the type species of the genus Hydnum. The growth produces fruit bodies (mushrooms) that are portrayed by their spore-bearing constructions—as spines rather than gills—which hang down from the underside of the cap. The mushroom tissue is white with a lovely scent and a hot or severe taste. All pieces of the mushroom stain orange with age or when wounded


The magnificent hedgehog mushroom is a flavorful, reliable, and flexible mushroom. Hedgehogs don’t have long, slender gills like most different mushrooms; all things being equal, minuscule soft, hairlike teeth or spines develop on the underside of their covers, which take after a bristly hedgehog, giving them their beguiling name.

New hedgehog mushrooms are fairly gentle in taste, yet their fragile, nutty flavor and delicate surface are very brilliant. These characteristics make new hedgehog mushrooms an amazing substitute for other new mushrooms, particularly chanterelles. When different mushrooms are unavailable, utilize the enchanting hedgehog in any dish calling for new mushrooms.

Also, the comparative Earthenware hedgehog (Hydnum rufescens). The magnificently hopeless sounding Discouraged hedgehog mushroom (Hydnum umbilicatum) isn’t recorded in the UK, however, I know a few areas where all the earthenware hedgehogs develop with a focal sadness.

Edibility – 4/5 –Delightful, firm-finished mushrooms

Dissemination – 3/5 –Not difficult to come by in the right territory

Recognizable proof – 5/5 –Direct: Search for pale (salmon pink to cream) 4 – 20cm width erratic covers with thick, squat stipes (often a few combined). Little, separable spines (1 – 5mm) on the underside of the cap. The general gestalt of hedgehog mushroom is of stocky robustness, however, the tissue breaks without any problem. On the off chance that your hedgehog mushroom appears tiny and salmon pink or light orange, you might have the firmly related earthenware hedgehog (h.rufescens). In the event that these have a recognizable focal misery or even opening (and you’re not in the UK), then you might have the brilliantly named discouraged hedgehog (h.umbilicatum). Both are eatable and acceptable, however of substantially less substance than their bigger cousin.

Habitat –mycorhizal with beech, birch, scots pine, tidy
