Wild Edible Mushrooms of Nova Scotia
This guide provides a list of edible mushrooms in Nova Scotia, Canada including the Halifax area and the Cape Breton Highlands and Kejimkujik 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.
