A new fungus came to Europe from the United States. How did it happen? Probably because of cuttings or soil. We talk about narrow boletus, also called American boletus. It is a fungus that likes mushroom pickers, because worms are rare in it. A new fungus was noticed in Lithuania and later spread quickly to Poland. At present, we meet him almost all over the country. What is worth knowing about him?
Boletus slopes grow bolder in Polish forests. Therefore, there is fear of whether there will be a contest and a threat to native porcini mushrooms. But you need time to find out. Let us remind you that before 2000 slender boletus did not appear in Poland at all.
