The St. George’s mushroom (Calocybe gambosa) is one of the first edible mushrooms in spring, along with the various types of morel mushrooms. Its distinctive floury smell, early appearance and thick cap flesh make it not too difficult to identify, despite its almost pure white appearance. In countries such as Italy, France or Spain, St. George’s mushroom is considered a welcome delicacy.
