Mysterious Giant Mushrooms


Can someone please identify these mushrooms? They were found in Florida, after a very rainy weekend. The biggest mushroom (next to my foot) is about 6-7 inches tall and about 10 inches wide in diameter. I would like to know exactly what species are these mushrooms, and if these mushrooms are edible or not. And if they taste good.

Here is an unrelated joke about mushrooms.

A mushroom walks into a bar, and the bartender says, "Hey! We don't serve your kind here."

The mushroom replies, "Why not? I am a fungi."


If you don't understand the joke, read it aloud.


I just found out that these mushrooms are edible and are called Parasol Mushrooms.

Thank you to everyone who helped me identify these giant mushrooms!
