In the Moscow region, the mushroom season traditionally lasts until mid-autumn, but the rich mushroom season in September has not yet arrived. Roman Vilfand, scientific director of the Hydrometeorological Center of Russia, spoke about what this is connected with and when to expect an abundance of whites, boletuses and butterflies. 

Why is the mushroom season not coming?

The growth of mushrooms is strongly influenced by air temperature, humidity and other weather indicators. In the dry period, the harvest is less than in the rainy one.

In an interview with TASS, Vilfand noted that since the beginning of September, just cold weather has set in the Moscow region. It rains lightly, the soil remains dry. Therefore, there is no need to talk about the onset of the mushroom season. 

When can we expect the mushroom season?

The weather forecast is not encouraging: one cannot count on a successful mushroom harvest next weekend, the expert noted.  

According to Vilfand, mushrooms will appear in the forests and groves near Moscow after a good warm rain. There is hope that it will still take place until the end of September, when the autumn mushroom picking is the most active. 

According to the forecast of the Hydrometeorological Center of Russia, on Friday-Sunday, September 9-11, there will be partly cloudy and no precipitation. Rain is expected on Monday and Tuesday, September 12-13, but it will be light and patchy.

What mushrooms can be found in the autumn in the Moscow region?

In the autumn, most mushrooms in the forests near Moscow can usually be found in September. Mushroom pickers fill their baskets with many types of mushrooms: porcini mushrooms, boletus, boletus, boletus, chanterelles, champignons, russula, milk mushrooms, mushrooms, honey agarics, etc. Since October, there are fewer mushrooms, as frosts are increasingly occurring. But you can still find porcini mushrooms, boletus, boletus, champignons, russula, mushrooms, milk mushrooms, oyster mushrooms, etc.
