South African Transkei Mushroom Information

One of the most exciting things a microscopist can do is research newer spores! And though South African Transkei isn’t brand new, it hasn’t been out for long. This cubensis variety was found in a southern state located in South Africa known as Transkei in 2002. Many of the specifics of the strain like “who found it” and “where exactly” are lost but the story has it they were found growing on some dung underneath trees. Regardless this intriguing strain is great for anyone!

The fruits of African Transkei are an incredible sight whether in nature or in pictures. They contain a medium-sized stem that is actually pretty dense. Its cap is about average size as well as its traditional golden-brown cubensis color. As it grows it changes into a dark brown and flattens into a plane. It has a strong thick veil that tears onto both the cap and stem. Sometimes they might not even tear! Its stem can also twist.

South African Transkei has the appeal of being a newer strain from a unique region. Making it rarer to find in spore libraries. Add it to yours so you can expand you spore variety!
