Sweet ‘apricot’ odor. Some think it is not quite as flavorful as C. cibarius.
Ectomycorrhizal with hardwood trees (esp.
oaks). Soil dwelling bright egg-yoke funnel-shaped yellow fruiting body. Its decurrent
hymenium smoother thanCantharellus cibarius and the fruiting body is thicker as
is the stem. Appears in summer and fall.
