Red Boy Spore Information

Red Boys are a must have for any mycologist as they have a mutation that causes them to uniquely drop red or rust colored spores. It was a very popular variety in the 90s but disappeared for some time. It was brought back into the mainstream from a spore print that was over 20 years old. Proving the hardiness of these spores can be truly unremarkable!

Red Boys are another mushroom strain with a unique characteristic that makes them desirable amongst many researchers. As implied by their name, these mushrooms do have red throughout their fruit. They have unusually large caps with a medium dense stem. Their slight red/cinnamon color is especially prevalent throughout the cap and gills.

But the real interesting aspect is their spores. Unlike regular dark colored spores or many albino’s mushrooms that have transparent spores, these spores are red. And this may not be unique to only this mushroom, it does make this mushroom a great introduction into pigmented spores for amateurs. Advanced microscopist can also enjoy the beautiful color this brings to their spore libraries!
