About enoki mushrooms

Enoki mushrooms are a distinctive variety that grows in tightly packed bouquets of tiny mushrooms. These white mushrooms have long, thin stems and tiny convex caps. The stems are usually between 4 and 5 inches long. Enoki mushrooms have a crisp texture and delicate, slightly fruity flavor. These mushrooms are very good at taking on the flavor of the other ingredients in your dish, so you can use them in a wide variety of applications.

If you're only familiar with wild enoki mushrooms, you should note that those purchased in the grocery store are slightly different. Enoki mushrooms harvested in the wild are typically shorter, with fatter stems and slightly larger caps. The coloring of a wild enoki mushroom is closer to brown than bright white, and they are more rubbery in texture and have an earthier flavor that's not as sweet as the cultivated alternative. Enoki mushrooms grow on tree trunks in the wild. When cultivated, they're grown in the dark to encourage the growth of longer stems.

Enoki mushrooms are native to Japan, China, and Korea. In Korea, they're known as Paengi Beoseot. The Chinese refer to these mushrooms as Jingu, and in Vietnam, they're called Kim Cham or Tram Vang. You might also see these mushrooms referred to as golden needle, velvet foot, or lily mushrooms. Enoki mushrooms are especially popular in Asian dishes, but you can use these versatile mushrooms in many other types of cooking.
