Re: Wild mushrooms where to sell

Thanks for a great link! I did not expected there is such organisation and regulations.

How you are supposed to make some for the winter if only 1kg per person is allowed?

I assume you know the law and have not been collecting them during 1. to 10. each month (for Zurich)?

The cantonal laws are summarised here:

Geiger counters are pretty cheap. Perhaps worth a check.

Definitely will be getting one, just read the research and would like to be as safe as possible of course.
Thank you

Guys I’m talking about wild mushrooms
So is everybody else. If they weren't wild picking them would be theft.

I found this great place to fish trouts. I'm telling you, each time I cast the fishing rod there was a big fat one on it within seconds!

Per day, and depends on the canton and the type.

Re: Wild mushrooms where to sell

once at the middle age festival in Bremgarten (not sure how it's called), a local club of mushroom pickers set up a huge room and offered various mushroom dishes. Maybe you can contact them

here is a club in zurich https://pilzverein-zuerich.ch/

Whenever I go there the fish are just bait-sized.

What's your secret? Should I use dynamite to blow them up?

Pfffft, far too arduous and slow.

Btw, you've probably never seen people leave their boat in the middle of the lake real quick, willing or not

Re: Wild mushrooms where to sell

How do you guys find your picking spots?

I tried using the SwissFungi map and going to a forest that had a few Porcini reports in the past couple of years, but the forest "near" the bus station was on steep hills, which made it difficult to cover a lot of ground and I only found inedible mushrooms.

To me these are clear sign that you were second, someone already got there and collected the good ones .

Was the bus station a post bus-station close to Zürich?

Mushrooms spots are usually difficult to reach (i.e. steep hills, some distance from paths). But given the sheer amount of people living in Zürich, I would say that if you want to have a reasonable chance of collecting Porcini you should go to Einsiedeln or to the Black Forest, both at 1h distance from Züri.

Re: Wild mushrooms where to sell

Dyed-in-the-wool mushroomers rarely share their favorite picking sites; good locations are secrets handed down from one generation to the next, guarded with one's life.

Well, almost.

Since I'm a not a good mushroomer, I'll share mine:

Head up the Rossberg, along the crest from Schindellegi to Einsiedeln. Lots of patches, just scan the usual terrain.

OH used to regularly bring home a decent haul while out walking, but it turns out it wasn't his skill, rather our much-missed Hooligan, Mushroom Hound Extraordinaire. She had a nose that couldn't be beat. Since the sad day she left for canine Valhalla, pickings have been markedly slimmer, OH's heart just isn't in it anymore. He still regularly sees folks with full baskets out that way, though.

Happy hunting!

Re: Wild mushrooms where to sell

Thanks, meloncollie, I'll give it a try!

I tried near Hütten, which isn't very far from Zurich, but I don't think that me getting there second was the issue.

Fixed that for you. Though wild boar sold commercially still need to have levels checked, highly radioactivity is somewhat exaggerated.

The risk of mis-identification is probably greater than the risk of radiation poisoning.

Migros sold chanterelle from Russia the other time.
I didn't buy them, not because of slammers post and a claim of a friend that she gets sick from them since Chernobyl but because I wondered why they need to come such a long way?

The incident in Chernobyl was 1986. I must have eaten kilos of them since.
