Wild Edible Mushrooms of Newfoundland

This guide provides a list of edible mushrooms in Newfoundland, Canada including the St. John's area and the Gros Morne, Terra Nova, and Torngat Mountains National Parks. Do not collect where prohibited.

This list only contains "safe" mushrooms - those that can be reliably identified and have no deadly-poisonous lookalikes. As a safety precaution, all mushrooms should be cooked and eaten in small quantities if not previously consumed.

Warning: do not attempt to identify a mushroom by matching the pictures alone; compare all the listed characteristics. Never experiment with a mushroom that you cannot positively identify. A poisonous mushroom can kill you.

  1. jelly ear (aka wood ear)
  2. king bolete (aka cepe)
