Enoki mushrooms

These mushrooms were growing out of the bark of a tall tree, and Boy says they are very delicious. They are enoki mushrooms, however they look very different than what you would find in the store because of their darker colour (from being a different strain and being exposed to light), and size of cap (from the light and the fresh air).

In the stores they don’t look like this because they are grown without light to make their stem long and their caps small. Below is a picture of what they look like in stores.
