Turkey Tail (Trametes versicolor) is a common mushroom in North America as well as other parts of the world. One of the best things is that its available 8 months out of the year whereas most mushrooms are only available for a few days to up to two months of the year! You’ll want to be careful when harvesting, however, because there are many lookalikes to Turkey Tail.

Before we get to all the medicinal benefits of this amazing mushroom, lets cover the identification. Remember, you need to be 100% sure you have the right mushroom before harvesting. I recommend using a few books as well as a local guide before ever consuming wild mushrooms. They are especially dangerous and poisonings are far more likely than with wild edible plants. That’s usually because mushrooms are cooked before eating them so large quantities can easily be eaten and poisonous mushrooms don’t necessarily taste bad.
