Giant mushroom found in Bolinas

Brian Ojalvo

SHROOM: Solomon Ojalvo, son of the winemaker Brian Ojalvo, found this hulking King Bolete (Boletus edulis) in Bolinas on Sunday. While it wasn’t officially weighed or measured, Brian pegged it at least 6.5 pounds (compared to 5 pounds of beef he bought that morning), 22 inches tall, and 12 inches across. They ate some on Sunday and dehydrated the rest, which took up four large mason jars.
