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.

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. golden chanterelle (aka chanterelle)
  2. jelly ear (aka wood ear)
  3. king bolete (aka cepe)
