A super-size mushroom has been spotted in Tengchong City, Yunnan Province. When it was first discovered, it was just sprouting. Three days later, it has grown into a giant mushroom with its height reaching 84cm, nearly the height of a small child. The diameter of its biggest cap grew up to 40cm.
Due to its unique scale, this mushroom got popular overnight. Most people were concerned whether it is edible or not.
A researcher from the Chinese Academy of Sciences said it is a Tricholoma, an edible fungus that mainly grows in tropical and subtropical areas.
