I ran into this guy at the Monterey Peninsula College Farmers Market on Friday Am last Spring (2014) and he had this Porcini from Pebble Beach which looks great but I am told could be filled with worms??? Last year we had a fair mushroom season on the Monterey Peninsula but 2015 will be epic I'm told and so far I've seen some awesome mushrooms both on my hiking trails in Pebble and PG and in Big Sur Forests. My word of caution, please do not eat mushrooms you pick unless you have someone 100% verify that they are edible.
