  1. Are they as tasty as regular chanterelles? or are they more like yellow foot chanterelles (they look kind of like a red version) which are similar but not quite as good. Posted one year ago
    1. I'm not sure! This was a national recreation area, so I couldn't take any home with me! Posted one year ago
  2. Nice! Was there a decent sized patch? Posted one year ago
    1. 10-15 of these little guys in moss. Unfortunately, this is a national recreation area, so I couldn't take any home with me! Posted one year ago

''Cantharellus cinnabarinus'' is a fungus native to eastern North America. It is a member of the genus ''Cantharellus'' along with other chanterelles. It is named after its red color, which is imparted by the carotenoid canthaxanthin. It is edible, fruiting in association with hardwood trees in the summer and fall.
