Oronge Mushrooms are wild mushrooms that grow in Europe, particularly in Italy and France. They grow in oak or chestnut forests in small groupings.
Their round, orangish caps are white inside. They have pale yellows stem that are thick and bulbous at the base.
They are very tasty, very rare and highly-prized.
Can be eaten raw. The juice it gives off when cooked is an orange colour.
Easily confused with another very poisonous Amanita mushroom.
The name “oronge” comes from the French Provençal word “ouronjo”, which refers to its orange colour.
