About chanterelle mushrooms

Chanterelle mushrooms come in several varieties found across the globe. These mushrooms are commonly confused with other mushroom varieties but are distinguishable by their unique characteristics. True chanterelle mushrooms grow wild in moist climates from June through December, depending on the precipitation amounts they receive. Their availability, flavor, and texture make chanterelles a widely popular mushroom.

During the 18th century, French culinary experts discovered chanterelle mushrooms, and they soon became the favorites of royalty. It was this status that elevated chanterelle mushrooms from common fungi to nobility. Today, chefs rank chanterelle mushrooms alongside truffles and morels. Chanterelle originates from the Greek word "kantharos", meaning tankard or cup. This term refers to the distinctive cup-like shape of the chanterelle.

Today, chanterelles grow in Europe, Asia, Africa, and North and Central America. They tend to grow in clusters in mossy, old-growth forests where plenty of moisture is available. Chanterelles develop interdependent relationships with trees. You'll often find them growing near maple, beech, birch, and oak trees. Did you know that some varieties of these mushrooms populate mountainous forests among low-lying grasses, amid wild herbs, or in the company of fir or pine trees?

Chanterelle mushrooms enjoy consistently wet summers, no matter where they grow.

Depending on the variety, chanterelle mushrooms are orange, yellow, or white. They are funnel-shaped and meaty with wavy, irregular caps. On the underside of the chanterelle mushroom cap, forked folds run down the stem. These folds taper seamlessly down from the cap and are a distinct characteristic that helps identify chanterelle mushrooms. They typically emit a fruity aroma, similar to an apricot, while other varieties may have woody or earthy scents. Cooked chanterelle mushrooms have a mild, peppery taste.

The false chanterelle is commonly confused with the true chanterelle due to its similar appearance. Although it's safe to eat, false chanterelle mushrooms may cause mild gastrointestinal issues. Knowing what to look for helps identify actual chanterelle mushrooms from the false.
  • The false chanterelle has true gills, while the true chanterelle has folds, one of its characteristics.
  • Color is telling, too. True chanterelles are closer to egg yolk-yellow, while false chanterelle's color is more orange and graded, with a dark center. 
  • True chanterelles have wrinkled and rounded folds that are randomly forked. The flesh is creamy white, unlike the surface color.
  • The cap of an actual chanterelle mushroom has a thin, uneven, waved edge.
