The unique robust flavor of the Pioppini has already made it a hit with chefs all over America. Also known as the Black Poplar mushroom, it has magnificent dark brown caps on long cream colored stems. The intense forest flavor makes it a natural for pastas, game, and red meats.

The caps are dark chocolate brown with a soft/silky texture. The creamy stems have a texture similar to asparagus. Excellent on its own, with red meats or game.

Widely used in Italy for pasta con funghi. Pair with big red wines.
