Pioppino mushrooms are small to medium in size with convex to flattened caps connecting to thin, elongated stems. The firm, soft, and silky caps range in color from dark brown to light brown/gray growing darker towards the center. Underneath the cap, there are small gills connecting to the fibrous cream-colored stem that has a texture similar to asparagus. 

All parts of this mushroom are edible. The stem can become a little more dense or woody as you get to the base. Slicing or chopping finer as you go will help give a more even texture while you cook. 


Pioppino mushrooms have a faint floral aroma and are meaty and crunchy with a nutty, slightly sweet, peppery, and earthy flavor.

These mushrooms have become a favorite on the farm and one that our customers are loving too. 

How to use the mushroom-

Pioppino mushrooms are best suited for cooked applications such as sautéing, pan-roasting, braising, stewing, or roasting. The caps of the mushroom are soft, but the stems can be tough and may require boiling prior to stir-frying or sautéing to soften the texture. 

These mushrooms work well in salads, soups, stews, baked potatoes, marinated meat dishes, stir-fries, tempura, hot pot, gravies, and white sauces. They can also be cooked in quiches, omelets, and casseroles. In Italy, this mushroom is often used in “pasta con funghi,” and also works beautifully in risotto. 

Pioppino mushrooms pair well with potatoes, arugula, radicchio, spinach, carrots, prosciutto, red meats, game, oregano, marjoram, mint, parsley, tarragon, chives, fennel, garlic, goat’s cheese, parmesan, walnuts, almonds, hazelnuts, rice, millet, quinoa, and polenta.

Our favorite way to store mushrooms is to chop them right away, store them in the fridge in a glass bowl with a wet paper towel on top. We’ve been able to use the mushrooms for 5-10 days. 

You can also keep them in the container you bought them in, in the fridge and they will last 3-7 days. 

The trick of long lasting mushrooms is letting them breathe while making sure they don’t dry out. 

They can be frozen either raw or in a sautéd or stir-fried state, as long as they are stored in an airtight container or a dedicated freezer bag.
