North Karelian mushrooms are known even in Italy. Mushroom pickers book their vacations in autumn, when the forests are full of mushrooms. When mushroom picking, one should make sure to only pick the known edible mushrooms. The most important edible mushrooms and the most common poisonous mushrooms should be recognized. A good way to start is to go with a seasoned mushroom picker or taking part in a guided tour.
