Matsutake is....... 松茸とは。。。
North American mushrooms are referred to as White Matsutake, as opposed to matsutake that are harvested in Asia which are more brown in color. It is a kind of mushroom that grow on roots of red pines and other trees in Asia, Europe and North America. They have a strong smell, which brings autumn buzz to people. But recent study says that the DNA between Japanese Matsutake and Canadian Matsutake are likely to the same. Also, Canadian Matsutake is more reasonable than Japanese Matsutake but still with the strong odor and flavour pretty close to Japanese ones as well, therefore, it is popular in Japan.
Matsutake picking season runs between September and December.

◎ Fly larvae “wormy”- Our wild mushrooms are hand-picked in the forest, and then individually graded and sorted by hand to eliminate “wormy” mushrooms. However, please note that it is impossible to detect 100% of the fly larvae because they live inside the mushrooms. It is a rare case, but it is possible that you may find some. Please understand that we do not provide refunds in this case.
