Enokidake, Enokitake, Enoki

Enoki, or Enokitake - This fungi takes on a sproutlike appearance with small caps and thin, long, stems. Native to Japan, white in color, with a light fruity taste, these mushrooms are excellent when served raw in soups and salads.

The enoki mushroom is native to both North America and eastern Asia, and were first cultivated in Japan, where they have become very popular.

Enoki look somewhat like a fat-stemmed hat pin, with a long slender stem and a tiny white cap.  They have a crunchy texture and fruity flavor, quite unlike any other mushroom. 

Wild varieties have yellow, brownish or orange caps. They are usually eaten raw in salads and sandwiches, or quick cooked in stir-frys. They become tough and fibrous if overcooked. 

Also known as winter mushroom, golden mushroom, Christmas mushroom, velvet stem, golden needles, snow puff mushroom, furry foot, and nametake.
