Yellow-Footed Chanterelles are valued for their good taste and aroma, which is faintly reminiscent of plums, though they don’t have the intensity of fruity smell and peppery taste that common Chanterelles do.
Though often confused with Winter Chanterelles, Yellow-Footed Chanterelles have a darker cap and a deeper yellow or orangey stalk.
The brownish cap is 1 1/8 to 2 1/4 inches wide (3 to 6 cm.) The stalk is 2 to 3 inches (5 to 8cm) tall. The flesh inside and the stalk is yellowish.
It grows in coniferous woods from late summer to early autumn.
