Yellow Chanterelle (Cantharellus cibarius)

Yellow Chanterelle (Cantharellus cibarius) is a type of edible mushroom that is prized for its delicate, nutty flavor and meaty texture. It is a funnel-shaped mushroom with a yellow-orange cap and a wrinkled, veined underside.

Yellow Chanterelles are often used in a variety of culinary dishes, including soups, sauces, and sautés, as well as in vegetarian and vegan dishes as a meat substitute. They are low in calories and high in nutrients, including vitamin D, fiber, and antioxidants.

Yellow Chanterelles are typically found in deciduous forests in Europe, Asia, and North America, and are harvested in the late summer and fall. They are highly prized by mushroom enthusiasts and chefs alike and are considered a gourmet ingredient in many parts of the world.

Chanterelle mushrooms are well-known for being rich in vitamin D which is responsible for maintaining good bone health. Vitamin D is an anti-inflammatory agent that wards off pain and infection. It regulates the absorption of calcium and phosphorus and facilitates the normal functioning of the immune system. It stimulates proteins in your small intestine which are responsible for absorbing calcium. This calcium is then used to strengthen the bones and teeth. Yellow Chanterelle is used to prevent bone conditions such as osteomalacia and osteoporosis that become more prevalent as the person ages.


Another important benefit of Yellow Chanterelle is that they are an excellent source of polysaccharides such as chitin and chitosan. These compounds contribute to building your body’s immune systems. They assist in protecting your cells from damage and stimulates your immune cells to produce more and more cells. These mushrooms can also help prevent certain kinds of cancer and reduce inflammation. ©

  • Vitamin A
  • Vitamin C

Yellow Chanterelle mushrooms are known for their unique and delightful flavor. The taste of Yellow Chanterelles is often described as fruity, with notes of apricot or peach. This flavor profile makes them stand out from other types of mushrooms, which tend to have a more earthy or umami flavor.


When cooked, Yellow Chanterelles have a meaty and tender texture, which can add depth and richness to a dish. They absorb flavors well, making them an ideal ingredient in soups and stews. Additionally, Yellow Chanterelles pair well with a variety of other ingredients, such as garlic, shallots, cream, and white wine, making them a versatile ingredient in many dishes.


One of the reasons why Yellow Chanterelles are so prized in the culinary world is their ability to enhance the overall flavor of a dish. They have a unique flavor profile that can complement and balance out other ingredients, while also adding a subtle sweetness and richness.


When cooked with butter or olive oil, for example, Yellow Chanterelles take on a slightly nutty and buttery flavor, which can be enhanced by the addition of fresh herbs such as thyme or rosemary. When combined with cream and white wine, Yellow Chanterelles create a rich and savory sauce that pairs well with chicken, pasta, or seafood.


Yellow Chanterelles can also be enjoyed raw, where their delicate flavor and tender texture can shine through. They are often used as a garnish in salads or added to dishes such as bruschetta or crostini, where their subtle flavor can add depth and complexity.


Overall, the flavor of Yellow Chanterelle mushrooms is unique and highly prized in the culinary world. Their fruity and delicate taste, combined with their meaty texture, makes them a versatile and flavorful ingredient in many dishes. Whether cooked or raw, Yellow Chanterelles can add a touch of elegance and sophistication to any meal.©


IDEAL GROWING CONDITIONS: Yellow Chanterelle (Cantharellus cibarius)

Yellow Chanterelle is difficult to grow indoors, and we think it is best suited for outdoor growing. Easily planted amongst pine trees and some broad leaf mixed woods.

We recommend using our mushroom grow bag hardwood to start your Chanterelle. Once the bag is fully colonised, you can then plant handfuls of colonised substrate into holes in the earth, around conifer type trees (pine,spruce,fir).

Alternatively you can make grain spawn with your liquid culture. You can then plant grain spawn directly into holes in the soil, around root zones of coniferous trees.

You could also create a growing bed in your garden. By creating a soil mix similar to a conifer woods(or dig some). Plant some small conifer saplings along with the grain spawn. The mycelium will grow and create a symbiotic relationship with the roots of the trees as they transfer nutrients, sugars & water to each other. This method can take longer than planting with well established trees.

Substrate: Conifer forest/Mixed forest/Forest Compost mix/Garden bed

Colonisation Temperature (indoors): 19°C – 24°C


10ml liquid culture syringe containing living mycelium of the Yellow Chanterelle mushroom.
Sterile alcohol wipe.
18G sterile needle for injection into chosen medium or grow kit.
Sealed in a zip lock bag.

All of our liquid cultures are prepared fresh for every order in our lab and we use a flow hood when carrying out all work to ensure clean cultures & packages.


Liquid culture is a a nutrient rich broth made up of distilled water, mixed with light malt extract dextrose and honey to create a mix for the mycelium to feed on. You can think of mycelium as the mushroom seed, this can then be used to inoculate a grow kit or substrate mix to start grow mushrooms.

We regularly test all of our liquid cultures on agar and grain to guarantee you only get the highest quality culture.


All mushrooms require different care and conditions to grow. With the right conditions, and coupled with our liquid cultures and grow kits.  You can grow your own mushroom easily.

We offer a wide variety of easy to use grow kits and mushroom growing substrates.

We’ve done all the hard work to save you the time and energy.

By growing mushrooms in our bags, this way you can have more control over the environment throughout the whole growing cycle, rather than if you were to grow outside.


We would recommend using your Yellow Chanterelle liquid culture as soon as possible to ensure maximum freshness and healthy growth. If you cannot use it right away then we advise storing your culture in the refrigerator for up to 3 months.

    Outstanding service, delivery, and product. Couldn’t be better. I bought liquid chanterelle culture – this variety is not easily cultivated and I want to work on getting it established in my spruce and maple areas. It’s a science project and I couldn’t be happier with the advice and the cultures. Recommended!

    It was a pleasure buying from this shop. The mushroom community can be quite secretive and closed off at times, but Garfield was nothing of that. He had no problem helping me with setting up my own grain spawn and even let me know some of his personal secrets on how the cultivation would work best. The syringes came packed in small, labelled ziplock bags. I have since inoculated my spawn and so far I have a 100% success rate. Shipping to Germany took about 6 days.

    Shipping was fast, I didn’t look at the culture under a microscope but it seemed good and healthy. The spawn doesn’t look any different yet but it hasn’t been long enough to expect a change.
