Found these fellas in a field on the edge of the woods. The other "giant puffballs" were of course, spherical. I have common puffballs too (aka wolf farts). These guys are more like the latter than the former in that they do in fact have a solid white inside. Almost cheese consistency. Closest I found in size and shape when researching were meadow puffballs, but they're rare in the states as I read. So... before I start the butter in the skillet, what say the fungus folks here? Eat em or pitch em? And on a separate note... How do you get the persimmons from the top of the tree when they're ripe? This is one of several and it is loaded with fruit!!
