MUSHROOM season in Mallorca is set for a bumper harvest after September’s heavy rains, an expert has predicted.

Carles Constantino from the Balearic Museum of Natural Sciences said that early-sprouting mushrooms were now being seen around the island.

FUNGI FOR ALL: Mushroom season in Mallorca

Mallorca has more than 100 edible mushrooms out of some 2,000 species on the island, with the recent wet conditions providing a boost.

“It has rained on wet ground, and that is good for mushrooms because the earth is humid and there is not much wind,” said Constantino.
