The most expensive mushroom ever


WORLD'S MOST EXPENSIVE MUSHROOM
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

What is the most expensive mushroom in the world?


We know you know the answer...truffles, but there are many kinds, the most expensive of which is the white truffle.

The white truffle is found mainly in Italy, grow underground by the roots of hazelnut and oak trees.

So you want to go hunting truffles? Better get yourself a truffle hunting dog or pig, but be careful because once the pig finds the truffle, if you're not quick enough, it will eat it.

White truffles are the world's second most expensive food next to caviar and run at about $2500.00 USD per pound.

Apparently in 2005 an anonymous buyer, from Hong Kong, at a charity auction  paid $112,000.00 for a 2.5 pound white truffle.

Now that's some pretty expensive fungus.
