Sparassis radicata

Sparassis (also known as cauliflower mushroom) is a genus of parasitic and saprobic mushrooms characterised by their unique shape and appearance. This appearance can be described as similar to a sea sponge, a brain, or a head of cauliflower, from which it has been given its popular name.

They are increasingly cultivated and being sold in the Korea, Japan, USA and Australia.

The generic name comes from the Greek sparassein meaning to tear.

Growing from the roots or bases of trees; found primarily under conifers (especially pines and Douglas-fir); annual, but often recurring yearly in the same location; causing a brown rot or a butt rot; summer and fall, or over winter in warm climates; fairly widely distributed in western North America.
