Did You Know. . .

that mushrooms are actually produced in nearly all states in the United States?

that Pennsylvania produces the most mushrooms?  In recent years, this state constitutes for more than 62% of the commercial manufacture of this fungi.

that the mushroom capital of the world is also located in this state?  Kennett Square even has a museum dedicated to the mushroom -- it is called the Phillips Mushroom Museum.  It was created in 1972 and is so-named because of a mushroom farming family by the name of Phillips.

that in order for mushrooms to create more mushrooms it releases spores?  In fact, one mushroom can release as many as 16 billion spores!

that mushrooms can grow in the dark without any light and still produce more mushrooms?
