A woman from Lai Thieu town, Thuan An district in the southern province of Binh Duong on June 6, found out a big white mushroom which is over 50cm high.

Ms. Truong Anh Dao said while she was walking with her younger sister in the early morning of June 6, she saw a big white object on the foundation of an old brick kiln.

From a far distance, her younger sister claimed that the object is a palm-leaf conical hat which was left by some woman. But it turned out to be a giant mushroom, which is called ‘nam da lon’ (pig skin mushroom) by local residents.

Dao had to shake the mushroom for a while by both hands to pull it up. She planted the mushroom into a pot.

The mushroom is measured at 50cm in height, 50cm in diameter, 3.5kg in weight. Local people said they have never seen such a big mushroom in their lives. The biggest ones are just several taels in weight.

Last October, Mr. Manh The Binh from the central province of Phu Yen discovered a giant mushroom, which is 35cm high, 16cm in diameter.

According to the World Guinness Book, the world’s biggest mushroom is 45.35kg, discovered by a farmer in Dorset, the UK.
