1.9 and 3.5 kg: giant porcini mushrooms picked in Correze

Romain will remember for a long time his picking this Wednesday, October 9th. He had gone with his uncle, Alain, to look for mushrooms on the side of the Millevaches plateau. For this 24-year-old resident of Chasteaux, mushrooms are a passion. And the ride, which lasted all day, was not in vain: the two fellows fell on a mastodon. This very broad and very firm cep weighs a trifle of 3.5 kg. Even the grandfather of Romain, who is Correzien and who has long been picking mushrooms, had never seen that.

The giant mushroom is not a particularity of the Correze. In recent years we have published many articles. Here is a small anthology of the biggest finds:
• Alexis, 12, does not regret having accompanied his farmer father, in the fields, last Monday. Back from the meadows, along a pine grove, the boy did not believe his eyes. A superb porcini weighing more than two kilograms stood majestically on a slope at the edge of the wood.
• Last May, Patrick Deneyrat, from Aurillac, made a good harvest in the Goul Valley: 36 large morels for a total of 5 kg, one of 705 g measuring 30 cm, and another 400 g!
