Smut on NPR
posted 1 year ago
NPR has a story on their website about corn smut. The fungus has been discussed here before, but it's been a while and I thought it worthwhile to post a link to the article. I've never heard of the stuff before, but it sounds delicious. There's a local producer here in Oregon that sells it for $20 a pound frozen; less than truffles, but still spendy.
Location: Cache Valley, zone 4b, Irrigated, 9" rain in badlands.
