Milzu apaļpūpēdis

Syn.: Globaria bovista; Lasiosphaeria gigantea; Calvatia gigantea
English name: Giant Puffball
Deutsche Name: Riesen-Bovist

The diameter of this fungus can reach up to about 70 cm (in Latvia). This is one of the largest fungi in this country. Spore powder is dark brown. When young, this fungus has white flesh and surface. As it becomes older, it produces brown spores inside it. This fungus prefers nutrient-rich soils. Usually it grows in grass in open places (parks and gardens, for example) from August to October. It is quite common in Latvia. Edible when fried, and tasty when young and still white.

Milzu pūpēdis - lielākajam Latvijā atrastajam caurmērs ir sasniedzis 70 cm. Jauni (kamēr mīkstums vēl balts) ir cepami bez novārīšanas - kā karbonāde. Ja neēdat šo sēni, tad ļaujiet tai izaugt un izsēt sporas!

 

Giant Puffball looks like a large white ball amidst the green vegatation. ▪  Milzu apaļpūpēdis izskatās kā liela balta bumba uz apkārtnes zaļā fona.

Giant Puffballs often grow in groups, sometimes quite close to each other. Earlier at this very location, dozens of them had littered the meadow!
Milzu apaļpūpēži it bieži aug grupās, dažkārt - pat stipri tuvu viens otram. Nedaudz iepriekš šajā pašā pļavā to skaits sniedzās vairākos desmitos!
